yeah they are attached to him. but NOT like anchor worms, they just look like they'r holding on for a free ride! his scales are perfect and his color is vibrant. he feels great too... no, he doesnt rub off anything either. ill try get pics of him but he wont hold still lol.
yes this is the 32g divided. 4 fish in there atm. yes he's the only one that has them on him and they're only on his body. id say around 6-10 of them...
tank is not planted. all fake plants. i dont vaccum simply because i cant find a shop that sells them
last time i set up my divider i had left the gravel in there for quite a while without having it rinsed... i just filled it and scooped all dirt with a net but obviously worms like that would fall through. it could have been they reproduced like hell in the old gravel and now they all appeared lol.
i have them in all tanks btw. spotted a few in the sorority, but only a few, and salmon has a couple in his 5g.
i take it they are nematodes and evidence i've been a bad fish mom
hard to see them, but those lil white lines is them! they kinda crawl along the glass like snails.
