Odd worm-like creature accompanying African Cichlid.
I have one African Cichlid in an Eclipse 12 gallon- Just the other night, I noticed him hiding in the cave, at the time I didn't have a heater. I put a heater, and he seemed to be thriving, being more active.
However- I noticed that night a worm- half of an inch- appears white- squiggling around in the water. It looked like it was adpated to water, for it got around fine, but my Cichlid payed no attention to it.
I thought he would eat it.
I haven't seen the worm since.
What should I do?
What is it?
Re: Odd worm-like creature accompanying African Cichlid.
Um.. he's fine. The tank is in my opinion quite large. He swims around often now and is fine.
I'm not at this house everyday,
so it's very hard to change the water that often.
I'll ask my father.
I change it every Wednesday- 30%
Water Parameters have to be aqcuired at the fish store, for, test strips here are scarce.
I don't EXACTLY have all the time in the world.
Without water parameters, how are we suppose to know if the water conditions are safe for the fish?:question:
I have algae killer droplets,
but I might try removing the fish and hiking the temperature up to 35 c or so to get rid of it.
I'll have to get some dechlorinator.
He's about 4 inches.
If the temp. change doesn't work.
I'll put my betta to see if he eats it.
I'll also try to get a catfish and pleco in there for now.
Parameters will arrie to you on Saturday.
