  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello all, I'm new to this hobby. I started a planted tank 15 days ago. It was until yesterday, I started really looking in the tank then I realized there are various worms living inside. A little background info, it's planted without any livestock, it has been 2 weeks into the cycle. I...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello, I have an emergency in with my shrimps. I have a temporary tank with all my shrimps. I finish my “new” tank this last Sunday (is a cycled tank) and I’m transfer my shrimps. I notice a lot of skinny brown worms swimming on the water of the temporary tank and I accidentally put some of...
  3. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi everyone! I left my magnetic scrubber (not sure what other people call it) in my tank overnight (which I don't normally do) and today when I went to move it there were suddenly tonnes of white worms!! I checked the scrubber closer and could see more of them hiding under it, so I'm not sure if...

    I currently have three tanks. One Aqueon Shrimp tank with yellow shrimp and a couple of nerite snails, one Fluval EBI Shrimp tank with a couple of nerite snails, and a 8 gallon tank I'm using as a medical tank for new plants before planting them into the other tanks Currently, the Aqueon and...
  5. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I currently have these in plague proportions -- I had 3 newly-added neocaridina die over the weekend, and the worms seem to have exploded from the nutrients. Im not sure why the shrimp died, all parameters look (and looked) great. I also keep this as a black-water-esque tank, so there are lots...
  6. Fish
    Hi guys, some of you may have seen my previous posts, you may have noticed that the beginning of my fish hobby has been a rocky road: given the ich, velvet disease, some behavioral/territory issues with Bolivian rams, and now finally this: I noticed red tiny worms peeking out of my rams anus...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    We've got worms in our tank and I can't tell if they are planaria or rhabdocoela. We definitely have hydra and we plan on having breeding shrimp, so we're going to dose dewormer in a few days anyway, but I still want to know what these are. They're too small for me to see whether they have a...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Got these things in my tank. Fast movers. They move super fast in spurts. Tiny. About the ¼ of the size of a BB. Slugs. Two types. Black slugs and white slugs. Here’s videos. In a cup In my 5 gallon bucket. 1st 15 seconds you can see it. Black slugs...
  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I got some plants and mud from a local pond and have them in a large jug. As expected, there were a bunch of hitchhikers, including at least one leech, a bunch of pond snails, some daphnia, and some red worms that I'm pretty sure are Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri. Of course, I'm keeping the jug...
  10. Algae
    I started a planted tank a couple of weeks ago and within one week the tank was starting to get covered in algae. I've had a fish tank all my life, but I'm new to the planted aspect. I realized the reason the algae was taking over was that I was leaving the light on to long (12-13 hours). I'm...
  11. 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...
  12. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Ordered hair grass online and instantly I could notice multiple different types of worms in the bag. I know fish can eat them but I'm just worried about diseases. How would I get rid of the worms? Maybe I can hose it down? I read about bleach dips but many people have a history of bleach...
  13. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hello everyone, this is the first forum I've ever posted on, so forgive me if I'm being a noob :grin2: I have a 3 gallon with 3 Amano shrimp and a baby female betta, a 5.5 gallon with a male Vieltail betta, and a 10 gallon that has no fish. All my tanks have plants in them: java fern, water...
  14. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Is it safe? The other day I was ciphoning a tank and drank some of the water on accident. My gf said I could catch a disease, should I be worried?:iamwithst
  15. Fish
    I am slightly concerned about 2 of my barbs. They have some odd growths on them. I am concerned they are parasites but they do not look like anything on the web that I have found. The fish are behaving normally and do not appear sick. If this is something, I want to hit it early. Should I treat...
  16. Substrate
    I was wondering if you had a high density of tubifex worms, like approaching the sickening density of those sewer slime monster videos, then would their respiration result in CO2? Also, consider that I have an undergravel filter attached to a powerhead. I'm thinking the water being pulled down...
  17. Colorado
    I have a good collection of live foods and I can share cultures to get you started. What I don't have at the moment is a Grindle Worm culture. If you have or know who has Grindle Worms, let me know. If you want any of the following, let me know I am happy to share a starter culture...
  18. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So far my re-introduction to the planted tank hobby has had disastrous surprises. Here is what happened: I started my first tank (Tank 1) last month, 2.5 gallons. It's moderately planted, and it has more or less cycled successfully, and housed one rosetail betta fish. Then after 2 weeks) I...
  19. Substrate
    I already posted this in the invertebrates category. I'm re-posting it here to try to get more responses, I hope that's okay. I just set up a 35 gallon tall tank and I'm considering adding some type of worm to help aerate the dirt. I've been trying to seek out info about worms in the substrate...
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I just set up a 35 gallon tall tank and I'm considering adding some type of worm to help aerate the dirt. I've been trying to seek out info about worms in the substrate on the web, but most of what I come across is just info about how to get rid of them. Once the tank is cycled I'm planning on...
