My 40 gallon tank has been up, running and cycled for over a year. I feed largely frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp. Yesterday when I performed a water change and cleaned my filters the pads were slimy which is frequently the case, but when I washed them many worms about 1/2 inch long washed into the bucket. Are these coming from my fish? I have 4 small green puffer's and a few danios and 6 cory cats. I have white sand and explored it carefully yesterday; no worms. The only place I found them was in the two filters. I have never seen any stringy white poop and the fish look to be in good health. Will worming the fish eliminate the problem?
