Didn't know where else to put this, but I figured it might work here since its in Leomhann's tank, and it might have come from the plants. Anywho.
Today, right before I decided I would start getting ready for bed, I went to shut off Leo's light. That's when I noticed this white stringy thing flailing around in the water - just in time to see Leo eat it. Then I noticed more, with a bunch of them above the water's surface stuck to the glass. Some of them are "free swimming" (more like struggling), others kind'a crawl on the glass, but a majority are stranded, and hopefully dead, above the water.
Are these planaria, or something else? Are these things harmless eyesores? Could they harm my King or my baby pleco (Leo has 2 scales on his head coming off - I think he bumped it)? Is there any way to get rid of these things short of restarting the whole tank?
The tank is 10 gallons (before you yell at me about the Pleco, I plan on getting a 20g sorority for it). All live plants, some tubed, some bulbs, others purchased as free floaters/potted. Gravel substrate, mixed sizes. It finished cycling a little less than a week ago, so its rather new.
Any other questions, just ask.
