Re: Odd worm-like creature accompanying African Cichlid.
This could be planaria. How often do you replace your water and how much volume? What are your water parameters? How mnay times do you feed? The cichlid, in my opinion, is cramped in that tank. I'd do every other day water change basis at this rate and feed it only once a day.

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?
