Introduce something else into the ecosystem that will feast on them! and then be ready to find something to eat that in turn.

I only have my 5 gallon at the moment though,don't want to introduce too much. I already have an apple snail and my betta. I will try a few shrimp as soon as I can find some though! Petco near me doesn't even haave ghost shimp.

I would freak out if I ever found those. Worms just disgust me. I'll have nightmares about them somehow finding their way into my body and eating me from the inside out...

Icky! I can't imagine something like that being "harmless"! I would want to get rid of it immediately! Good luck.

I would love to have planaria. I enjoy finding good things in my tank that I didn't put in myself.

I guess I am ok with them being in my tank as long as they are not hurting my fish or anything, even though my OCD is telling me to get rid of them!


So, I will probably just wear gloves while cleaning the tank from now on.
They'll eat your plants. Parasite kill should get them.
