Thank you for responding. Google snail flukes, very interesting. Turns out snails carry skin, gill, blood and liver flukes. I think I read about bleach dipping plants before putting them in the tank, but I don't know the ratio or the duration.P.S. Some flukes are transferable to humans, Google showed pictures of an arm infested.
