- - White worm? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-freshwater-aquarium/white-worm-17524/)
I just finished a water change and I saw a white worm about 1/2 inch long and about twice the thickness of a human hair free floating in the tank. I thought it was just some debris at first but it started wriggling around!
Can this be planaria or a parasite?
I think I found out what it is, planaria. I looks like this:
Thanks for looking!
Yup! Planeria- it's a sign of overfeeding. Just cut down the feeding and up the water changes and it'll go away.
