hey I have a turtle tank with one black skirt in it with 2 musk turtle 29 gallon small canister... I'm thinking of throwing 29 gallon old tank out and getting a new one with a nice stand and new canister filter... what kind of worm do you think it is? it's about 1 inch or more long and skinny... uhmmm...

should I grab it with pinchers and flush it?

it's gross and on glass wall

Can´t believe the turtles haven´t eaten it, but I would definitely dissinfect that tank because it could be a parasite and your pets (and you) are at risk

you wouldn't find any parasitic worms anywhere except inside the animal. Their larval stage might hitch a ride or live inside other animals like crustaceans but not the fully developed worm.

it's most likely gross but harmless.

But it doesn't hurt to deworm your pet either.
