I know, I'm too scared to siphon it out. Asked my sister to come and check in the morning

The thing that looks kinda like a rat tail? Or the stuff that looks like fungus or rotten food? Either thing is weird!
At first I thought it was a long poop, then a tail.... but the thing it's attached to looks like a snail, but I don't have any snails . It's definitely not food,

It does look kind of weird I want to know what it is to. Who know you might have a new species growing in your tank and not know. It really does look like some type of creature with a long tail

Do you have some kind of stick you can move it with? Is it still in the same spot?

I’m brainstorming here, but it could be a worm.

That creeped me out thinking about it.

That seems like way too long compared to the body shape to be a tail. Could you take a more zoomed in picture with sharper detail? It is pretty impossible to tell from this one.

Could it just be something organic that fell in and is melting? Like a leaf with stem from a nearby plant?

That’s so neat! And it just appeared overnight?! It’s probably harmless so I wouldn’t worry. There’s so much that live in our tanks, most of it harmless.
I also think it’s probably a worm of some sort.

Sooooooo my sister came round and had a look at the tank

Me: what is that, can you get it out
Gloria: sure but you'll owe me one
Me: yeah whatever just get it out

Gloria gets a piece of tissue puts on her marigolds, I run and hide in the kitchen

Me: is it gone
Gloria: it keeps moving I can't catch it
Me: screaming
Gloria: I got it, do you wanna see
Me: no, get it out of here
Gloria: remember you said you owe me one

Gloria laughs gets in her car and leaves. 20 mins later Gloria calls laughing hysterically and said it was a crypt leaf!!! But I should remember I owe her


So I guess I'm a bit of a drama queen, but in my defence it didn't look like a plant leaf :sorry:

This thread was hilarious! Reminds me of the time when I was a teenager and my mom and sister were screaming there was a snake on our enclosed back porch. I go out there to deal with it (dad is at work & I'm the only female in the family not afraid of snakes) and I look all around & don't see a snake. Meanwhile they are both still screaming "It's right there...kill it..." etc. Well turns out their "snake" was a black shoe lace. :rolleyes:
