Hey Everyone, I noticed today that a little squiggly worm like thing was in my tank... its really small were talking 1/8 of a inch.. i really dont know how i noticed it... i watched it and it didnt look like debris it looked like it was swimming in there.

I couldn't really find any info on this and was wondering if anyone had some knowledge they could share on this? possibly shine some light on it... my tank hasnt been effected that ive noticed, all my levels have been pretty good. my ph was a bit low at 6.0ppm a while back but since then ive got them to normal levels.

Thanks again in advance.
Frank

These worms are called Planaria (I know I miss spelled that)
They are harmless but caused by over feeding... Cut back on your feeding, and vacuum the tank REALLY well a few times. They will go away!
