    Recently I saw a few wiggling worms in the yank and these worms are very fine thin type that wiggles to move about. Even the fishes ignore them, ever saw Rummy nose take a swallow to one of them and spit out later. Must had tasted awful.

    Question is what are these worms??
    Are they parasite??
    Will they cause harm to the fishes?
    How to eradicate them?

    My puffer fish is ignoring the snails now and is taking blood worm, it doesn't seems to have any interest in these wiggling worm at all.

    Colour? Length?

    General action: reduce feeding, wash your filter (basically rinse out the detritus that usually settle at the bottom of the filter).
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    Pink/biege colour. Very fine thin. less than 0.5mm, i think more of like 0.1mm like.

    Wigglings a lot and curl up when touch. Need to use twiser to pick up these creatures.

    Length about 8mm stretched.
