What Is This?

Madeline Peterson

Found something very strange in my tank. I don't know how to describe it, so let me just show you a video:



My best guess is spagettI worm, but they're saltwater. Any other ideas?

Are any of your plants relatively new?

I notice you have a Marimo Moss Ball in there? I once bought a couple of moss balls online and when they arrived they had white worms in them. I created a strong aquarium salt solution and submerged the moss balls for about ten minutes and then rinsed them through with clean water which solved my problem.

Could they be nematodes? I had some nematodes also that I noticed after adding some snails to my tanks. They cleared up again with a small dose of aquarium salt.

Definitely not nematodes. They stay fixed to one location, for the most part, and it looks like the waving is part of filter feeding.

If I had to guess where they can from, is say the coconut husks attacked to moss I just got. I've got one of the moss balls another place, and no sign of them.
