I all- I am new to this site! I;ve had a planted tank for 6 months now, and lots of questions… I also have leeches in my tank. They look just like these: They get into the filter, and after scraping them off the filter wall, or pulling them out of the media with a forceps, I kill them with boiling water. The eggs are in little hard cases- I scrape those off and kill them too. I thought I was getting ahead of them, but yesterday I looked on the underside of a piece of wood and there were about 50 eggs. Yuck.
My question is: Are they dangerous to fish or snails or shrimp? Can I just live with them? Yes- they probably snuck in with the blackworms I sometimes treat my fish with.
