So as i was preparing to get some new shots of my shrimp tank(since i have not posted in a good while) i noticed those... worms inside my tank. They are about as long as a red chery shrimp but not as thick and they are very very PINK! In the pics they look white causse of the backlight.
So what the heck are they? And how do i kill them?

I don't know what they are, but I've seen pictures of something called planaria which looks similar to that. It might be worth a google to see if that's what it might be.

no worries they are normal acuring in the tank where theres left over food or over fed fish. they wont harm anything. make sure the shrimps eat everything and remove the leftovers and everything will be fine.

God i'm an idiot... yes it is planaria, for some reason i mistook planaria with the threadworms as in i was thinking that planaria looks like threadworms so this things could not be planaria.
Thank both of for the replies.

Yes it is, yes i do, it's a macro lens tho the pics were made in a rush so they suck.
This is what it can do tho and it was not used at it's best.


IMO they are the best on the market from any point of view and they are also almost half price compared to sony and what not lenses.

you can control planaria by not overfeeding, the same can be said wth snails.
