Small black worms
I have a 55G fresh water tank with an asst. of mollies, platies, a large pleco and a breeding net with about 30 fry. Tonight I noticed 3 small black worms clinging to the inside of the net just above the water line. They were about 1/4 to 3/8" in length. Does anyone know what they are, doe I need to worry about them, and how did they get there?

Not sure if they're blackworms... Blackworms burrow in the substrate.
Regardless, they're fish food. Might be mosquito larvae... As I said, fish food. :)

I did alot of reading on this, and I appreciate all of the info you guys have given me. So I won't worry anymore. I only found a few an I am assuming they camne from food that got stuck in the net. The net has since been removed as I released the fry into the tank.:lol:
