At least this is what was speculated it is anyway (Some sort of Scattered Very Tiny White Dots). I've heard this is some kind of worm. At any rate, one of the pieces of driftwood was covered in it and was mostly cleaned a week ago. I would like to thoroughly clean this piece of driftwood before the new tank is established. What do you think?
Fine, if you can somehow boil the wood. That may not be sufficient of course. I've never had planaria or other worms, they are mainly harmless of course, said to be due to excessive food; are you sure this is what they are? Any chance of a photo?
And yes, I transfer wood and rock and plants without washing and bacteria hitches along for the ride.
