I have no idea what's going on with my tank but, one day I saw these white things and they moved.
For lack of better description I guess they are like worms and are short like this -- except white and they crawl around the glass of the tank. It's rather gross.
Does anyone have a slight guess as to what it may be? Anything would help because I have no clue but I think it may be a parasite.
Welcome to Fishforum.com, Ethereal.:wave:
They're planaria which are actually harmless. Your fish should be able to eat them. They are a result of poor tank maintenance and overfeeding.
Ah flatworms.. eww. Thanks, I dont think my fish do a good job at eating them. Is there another way to get rid of them?
The tank is always acidic no matter what I do, would that be considered poor maintenance?
I change the water once a week, so I should probably do that more.
As for the feeding, I usually feed them once a day but my parents go insane and feed them again 12 hours later -_- they feel they arent getting a share of fish care.
Ill keep these things in mind, thank you. They just look gross.. I dont want to see them when I watch my fish :(
