Is planaria a match?
These things were in my filter last time I cleaned it. I'm pretty sure they function as decomposers in the ecosystem, breaking down larger things into smaller things. They do no harm.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

yep. found it almost immediately after looking again. it's odd they are in my sump and not my display because i don't add anything to my sump.. i just cleaned it last night though; it was FILTHY. I don't mind the pest snails in there but i'm not a fan of seeing these.

Aww, they are cute!
If it was filthy that explains why they were in there.

lol i don't know about cute but as long as they aren't going to eat my fish i won't give them a salt bath i suppose. speaking of eating my fish.. it's lights out for the night and i just added 8 rummynose tetras to my tank.. of the last 5 i added 2 made it the first night and have been fine for a week and the others are in my senagalus' belly. i over fed him so i hope he is slower to snack on the poor dither fish now.. i like the shoal of 10
