Planarian flatworms info

The subject of planaria has come up once or twice recently, so here is some info on them.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I discovered a couple of these critters in my tank not long after adding some new anacharis plants (even though they were well rinsed).
I was able to just net and toss them before they created more.

Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.
