anyone have any idea what these are they’re tiny white worms on the glass in my fry tank?
Those look like detritus worms. I believe they are caused by an excess of phosphates, most commonly found in fish food. Maybe cut back on feeding a little.
I think those are planaria which are harmless.
Knock them off the glass and if they swim away in an s like shape theyre detritous worm if they contract into themselve theyre planaria.
Planaria will have a triangle shaped head with 2 eyes clear to see if you get a good enough look. Planaria are bad if you have or plan on shrimp. Fenbedazole [one treatment] will wipe them out if they are planaria. If they are detritus worms you may be over feeding ?
Could be over feeding actually I feed golden pearls then do water changes daily but I haven’t been cleaning the bottom of the tank. Glad they’re harmless
