I've got a couple of pests in my 10g snail tank.

The first I am pretty sure are planaria. On the glass, moving like cells:





Not sure what this one is. Can swim quickly, can bury itself in substrate, seems to jump at light, swims a little like a shrimp.



I've started dosing fenbendazole, around .05-.01 gram a day. First dose last night, snails seem fine but so do the planaria so far.

Thanks again, I've never heard of those, but looks like fenbendazole won't be effective. At least they seem harmless enough. I'll use the trusty turkey baster to start manually removing these guys because I think they're icky. :)

Agreed with above. But a flatworm is a flatworm. Both he and the scud are symptomatic of overfeeding. You can either medicate or cut back on the amount you feed- either would be effective.
