Woooah, talk about infusoria.

Or something.

I glanced in my 10 gallon a minute ago and... Jade's side is SWARMING with tiny little worms. My granpa's hundreds of baby guppies would be in heaven. Except it's pretty hard to transport these worms from this tank to their bucket.

Crawling all over the glass... flying around in every which way in the tank... shoot, if only Jade would build a freakin bubble nest and keep up with it for a female, I'd totally breed in this tank.

I'll post pictures, though... if I can capture those small little things.
Let me know if they really are infusoria. (Jade's side has quite a lot of plants... or at least thick ones. :P )

The pictures:

I have Leliia in the QT in there (one of my new guppies thought she was a female guppy, so he went after her in that way you know, she got ticked off, and she killed him >>; Aaand she's in the QT so her fins can heal), so it helped me get some decent pictues of the little wormers:

Close-up:


You can really see them when the sunlight shines through:



And the culprit, lol... you can also see that lots of sunlight can get in:

Those look like Planaria. I don't think you can see infusoria that well. Planaria are fine too. They won't hurt your fish and she may even nom on them.

Oh, planaria?
Ahh, I wouldn't know one tiny worm from another... especially since I'm no breeder. Or worm expert. |D

Thanks, though.
Leliia doesn't have any (that I can see) in her QT, and I doubt Jade would eat 'em. xP

Hm. I dont know what they are, but I have spec looking things in mine, too. Theyre not** worm like, though. They just look like small specs on the sides, but you can tell theyre alive and moving. Alle looks at them and just....doesnt care. Ohhhsigh. Eat them, Alle!
