VayGirl: Sorry about that, though I have a feeling most people are sorta grossed out as well. XD;

Sjones: that reminds me of the time I let a huge can of koi pellets get soaked in the rain and sit around for some weeks by accident. Cleaning that thing out was absouletly disgusting. XP

They're back! D: I looked at my tank, and realized my fake ivy had uprooted itself and was sorta everywhere, and I went to stick my hand in the water, and I saw a little worm swim by right next to my hand! *shudder* ... sigh, I'm probably making a big deal out of close to nothing, but I can't stand them! :P

Oh, jeeze Jakr959, that's so comforting, I'm positive I'll sleep soundly tonight XD ... but if it's world domination the worms want, they'll have to take it from my friend, who apparently rules the world, and is the queen of sheba and Austrailia.

I would agree with what dramaqueen said earlier. I believe it is caused by over feeding and is harmless.

The Betta actually seems to enjoy them very much once they get big enough to see. I know this, because I have the EXACT same problem going on. My tank appears to have what might be thousands of these small worms.

So far the Betta doesn't seem to be affected *knock on wood*
I may buy a small pleco or a few ghost shrimp for the clean up.
