Exclamation What is in my tank o.O?



See those random black squigglies? They keep multiplying like crazy across my tank and I'm not really sure what they are. I've been trying to get rid of them but there always seems to be some left :/ Thats what this picture is - the bits I missed.

Any idea what they are? They look harmless until they are literally everywhere.

As far as I can tell no :/ I'm staring at my tank and a snail [dang those things sheesh] seems to be pooing? Could it be snail poop? A... large amount of it? If so I really hate those guys this is crazy I don't see enough snails to account for this.

snails poop alot. but snail poop is easier to see and siphon out then say left over foods and stuff so people have snails(often in fry tanks that don't have gravel) to make it easier to clean.

i haven't had a snail in years so i don't rember what it's feces look like xD google it?

Google isn't giving me anything useful. :( For some reason the look of it creeps me out. probably because of how much there is all clustered.....

Yeah, looks like my snail's poop. The gravel vac isn't getting it all? Maybe siphon out the leftovers with a turkey baster.
