So I have 3 really sick neons in QT and I'm going to get clove oil to euthanize them tomorrow, but as I was feeding them I saw these little white worms on the glass. What are they? Its bare bottom and it may or may not be cycled as I've been using used filter media but just In case I dose prime everyday and do a 25% Wc every other day. Also if anyone wants to help me even more please check out my thread before this to help me identify white bumps/cysts that are on some of my neons.

They look like deritus worms. They are harmless.
Okay. There are over 1 thousand of them on the bottom.

Yeah.. usually you see them more in shrimp tanks. but since your fish are sick... Im sorry... they will usually eat them.

Yeah I'm having a hard time with the neons. I'm debating whether to euthanize them all or just keep pulling out the sick ones when they get sick and euthanize them then. I've already treated them a lot and seen no results so I'm just assuming its NTD. Thanks for the help
