    Just as the title says :U I thought it was snail poops for some reason and was going to clean them off but then noticed they're moving. What do I do about these things? Are they harmful to fish?

    They're so small my camera won't focus on them D:

    I think they are detritus worms.

    I have them in one of my tropical tanks. If I use pimafix they really come out. Read they are from uneaten food or debris in substrate but are not harmful. I still dont like seeing them tho.

    Thanks. As long as they're not harmful I don't really mind. Weird but not bad
