  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I know Walstad mentions using black worms in her book. I've been reading mixed reviews. They are hard to find here and I don't wanna make the effort to get some just to have the tank go south. They seem like a better option than MTS for stirring the soil, mostly bc almost every fish will eat...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So I thought this was a dwarf hair grass root in my tank, but after some investigating (and a poke with a tweezer) it turns out it is a little worm. I wish I would have taken a pic before taking it out, because it was a much lighter, whitish color. It actually looks a lot like an earthworm, but...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I need guidance from an invert. master. A few days ago I discovered little white worms in my tank. At first I thought they were only on the glass, but with closer inspection I noticed them on my RCS's. I also have amanos in the tank, but they appeared to have no worms. I believe they are...

    I have a totally established tank thats relatively heavily planted & has some driftwood and rocks as furniture. I am definitely not a novice hobbyist. There are some whitish/greyish worms that I have been dealing with since more than a month now. When I originally saw them I thought within a...
  5. Fish
    Hi, I have these dark gray/black worms (they are sometimes lighter gray too), ranging around 2mm-4mm long in the tank. The diameter of the worms must be less than 1 mm, so they are quite thin. They are seen hanging off plants and when a fish passes near enough, they attach to the fish and...

    Hi Guys, I'm brand new to the forum and after reading a few articles here I think you may be able to help. I own one 12G fluval edge which I adore. I had it stocked with 10 guppies, real plants, a small butterfly pleco and a zebra snail. All was well. No algae, healthy fish for months...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Like the title suggests, is it possible to de-worm snails and shrimps of internal parasites? Thing is, I have a TON of ramshorn snails, MTS snails, scud gammarus shrimp, dwarf shrimp culls in a tank that I use to collect a whole lot of them when they overpopulate my planted tanks; it's a tank...

    Hey, this is my first post! Cool! Anyway, I was looking at my tank just as I do every pretty much every night, when I saw something that disturbed me. In the corner I discovered many (about 5-7) little worm like creatures trying to wriggle up through the substrate. I then carefully inspected the...

    If you have a grindal worm starter that you're willing to sell, I'd love to buy one. With the cold weather, I'd prefer to buy locally and not have to deal with shipping from an online vendor. I'm in the northwest 'burbs and can drive to meet you.
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hey Guys and gals, I have a question but this is my first post so i'll tell ya a little about myself. I have been fishkeeping for 20 years and loved every minute of it. Kept mostly south American Cichlids, my water is very soft (0) and acidic (6.3). I keep my tanks clean with weekly 50%...
  12. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I've had small white worms in my aquarium for a while now; I believe they are nematodes. They are harmless, but I'd prefer them to be gone... is there any proven effective treatment for them? I have no inhabitants at the moment in the tank with these. Would the no-planaria product work on...
  13. Fish
    So I've got a small school of 15 or so Boraras brigittae (chili rasboras) and I've been trying to feed them more than just crushed flakes. -I have NLS "small", but they seem to never enjoy it and just suck it up then spit it out almost all the time. -I feed them frozen cyclops, but they seem to...

  15. Plants
    Triple Q's in the title lol...:thumbsup: Generally when I get plants in I check them over and pick anything off that I see which is easier said than done depending on what you have. I know there are all sorts of dips you can use, traps, and well.. it's a lot to take in as everyone has a...

    Greetings! I am searching for a source of live Tubifex worms. It would be good if it were local - I'm in Orlando, FL, but if a mail delivery is the way to go, I'd prefer a source on this side of the country to cut down on delivery time. Many thanks for this information!
  17. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I started a new tank just over a month ago. It's a 46 gallon tank that I added treated water and water from my 65 gallon tank to. My 65 gallon tank is heavily planted and has been great for years with no problems. My new tank is also heavily planted and I have gradually been adding fish. I just...
