  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've searched for an answer to these worms but haven't seen anything that looks like them yet... Anyone know what these little things are? Some of them like to ride my poor Nerite Snail :/ They don't appear to cause it any harm though. They can also be found attached to the glass. During water...

    Hi All, Need some advice on the best way to get rid of detritus worm infestation. Two weeks ago my last couple of zebra danios died abruptly in my 10g tank, which was heavily planted with java moss and other assorted aquatic plants, and has been established and running for nearly 2 years. Did...

    Hello everyone, I was peering into my small nano planted tank and noticed there was a little "tubie" creature crawling around and a few on the plants. They look to be some type of tube worm though I couldnt find an exact picture of the ones I have online to 100% confirm it. Anyone ever had...

    Spotted a wiggly worm or parasite in one of my tanks, it was free swimming and fighting the current. Had no fear of being out in the light. It has a thicker part just below its head making it look like a long tailed sperm.. wtf is it? Its in a tank with a mostly blind betta so I don't know...

    I have a 1-gallon tank with freshwater clams, 2 mosquito fish, some plants, and many ramhorn snails. In this video I was doing a partial water change when I noticed these worm-like things gyrating in the water. Please let me know what it is!

    Is this a worm, or leech? Heres two of them I pulled out of my substrate today. One side seems to have a sucker of some sort maybe? The other end is constantly wiggling around probing. Whatcha think? They are very dark brown.

    Okay I'm going to apologize in advance. I'm not very knowledgeable about mystery snail anatomy so I might be about to embarrass my self tremendously. So I've had this snail for about a week and today I noticed a white worm looking thing coming out of its "vent"(the part they poop out of). It's...

    Help guys! I just bought a massive amount of Java moss from a member. Great guy and moss is really lush. But what I did was I put it in a jar and left it next to the window stance for indirect sunlight. It's doing well... the thing is I was told the Java moss has some MTS babies in there.. but...

    I got a paired of puffer fish and bumblebee goby & I've try feeding them everything possible but they are very picky eater. The only thing I've had success with, is brine shrimp; but they are too much work, expensive & died easily. My question is... what other alternative live culture foods...

    I noticed in both my tanks a very small red worm like creature crawling around. Could these come with a plant? Are they harmful? Could they be frozen bloodworm that were cryogeneicaly frozen, but unthawd in my tank and escaped my fish's bellys? LOL

    Hitchhikers that came in a bag of plants... At first i thought they were something bad.... But after I calmed down I did some research and they look like black worms to me. In which case they would be harmless right? I could maybe even feed them to my betta? Please let me know. They are more...

    I can only try to describe the critters that have infiltrated my tank. Once upon a time we had a fry tank that got infested with snails, so instead of flushing the snails (and ending up with teenage mutant ninja snails) we set up a dwarf puffer tank. Now that the fry are grown....the former...
