so the frogs get everything you put in the tank, good :)

and the frogs poop, ... :/

and your cleaning your substrate once a month ? :(

that's a lot of poop, ... which after bacteria has had it's meal, it's a lot of dirt & nutrients, that get moved into the water column or otherwise left for the worms to find whatever it is hey eat

Just wanted to say I got the problem taken care of.

We ended up having to move the aquarium (no choice :() so I had to take as much water out as possible for it to be lifted out. I used the vacuum in the rocks the whole time.

Refilling it I still saw a small amount of worms, but over the weeks they are 100% gone. I must have brought them over from the other tank and missing spots when I vacuumed.

Whatever the case, I'm glad they're gone. (My tadpoles aren't, but ah well) I'm now focusing on live plants and I have no problem putting my arm in the water anymore. xD
