Rickey, thanks, definitely going to be looking that up and adding a microscope to my list of things to get :)

Sally, ... i'm not sure, but it looks like cyanobacteria in the one picture.
the white fuzzy stuff, ... any experience i've had with that i tend to ignore and adjust my feeding and it solves itself.

as for the worm you posted, ... the spikes coming out of it would worry me lots :(

I've never thought of cyanobacteria as white - I guess I think of it as green. I've found some weird things in the microscopic world! I have huge numbers of the nematodes - hopefully the scavenger ones - a few other things that are disc shaped, water fleas and those worms. I think the spiny things are their cilia - ie means of locomotion. Looking through the microscope makes my skin crawl at times!
