Creepy, Creepy WHERE did THIS come from?
So I was just getting ready to leave and I look at the fish, which is common practice. Gotta check to see if everyone is alright. Tonight I see Bentley, my crooked Cory sitting there on the bottom in the corner. He seems to be looking at a leaf that is waving around with the movement of water only... upon closer inspection, it is NOT a leaf. It is a worm of some sort. What the heck, where did that come from? This creepy thing looks like an earthworm, is (was) about 2 1/2 inches long and is reddish in color, much like an earthworm. What can that be? Where could it have come from? There has been nothing added to this tank for a long time. Let's just say I have a major creep factor going on right now. I feel like an alien showed up at my doorstep.
Anyone got any ideas? I mean, no birds flew over and dropped it in. It seemed to be trying to dig down into the substrate but wasn't making much progress. I think another 80% water change is in order and I might clean up the gravel a bit where I can get to it. ICKY!!!
