I would be screaming for another reason.
In the year and a half, that I have had the black leeches I have never seen these eggs before. I usually see the adults crawl to the top of the tank by at least a hundred. Then a week later I see this huge mass of tiny orange worms on the front glass. When I vac every other week I vac large amounts of the adult black leeches. I did not have the monthly die off of the adults leeches, this time.
I just put the eggs on a plate, nothing moved. I turned off the light and left the room. Came back in and saw two very very tiny orange worms. So these are my _ _ _ _ leeches.
I am due to vac on Sunday. I will look at each plant and squish what I can't vac.
I have used a few different chemicals (clout, fluke and copper) to no avail over the last year. I even bought the expensive copper safe for after.
I am thinking of getting a slightly bigger tank. I am pretty sure other then fish everything else has to go. I think the worst part of that is I just got over really bad Diatoms and GSA. I also just got a large amount Roak plants which I have soaking in Alum and PP that I don't want to contaminate.
