    Hi guys! I got this CT female from Petco last week. I've kept her in a 1 gallon jar because I haven't cleaned my tank properly since my last fish passed. However, I noticed she was pretty chunky so I was studying her and noticed that the bottom of the jar looked like she had passed some worms...

    Hello I left for about a week and left my fishie, Casper, in the hands of my neighbor along with care instructions. I came back to a fairly clean tank but little white worm-like things crawling all over the tank glass mainly near the water's surface. I was spooked and siphoned the tank and...

    Hey there, I have noticed in V-Tale's tank some strange little friends. They have been more present now that I've got a better sense of what I'm looking at and knowing now it's not plant material from the Camboba. Also with feeding and not over feeding. It is a planted aquarium, plants came...

    So this is my third post, and it has been almost two months now. My betta's stomach is still severely swollen, and he has gotten bigger. It can't be comfortable for him with how large he is. The problem is that after two months, he still hasn't started to pinecone, so I'm hesitant to call it on...

    Hi! I recently discovered (1-2 days ago) that my betta has callamanus worms. There are 4-5 worms protruding from his anus. He is not eating and his only tankmate is an apple snail whom has been in there a good few months. Anyone know how to treat them? I am very worried.

    Hey guys. Today I was cleaning my tank when I cam across some small (Very small) red/brown straight worms on the glass. I panicked and removed the two I saw, and haven’t seen any others. I have a ten gallon with live and fake plants, stocked with 8 corys, 1 betta and 2 guppies. Most are healthy...

    I have a 5 gallon aqueon aquarium. It's been running for about 2 months now. This morning I found wiggling worms stuck in the filter. Some are all black but another type is small, skinny, black/white stripes with black head/tail. It's freaking me out. I've never experienced worms before. I...

    Hi everyone! Right before heading to bed tonight I checked up on my betta, Julius (double tail betta whom I rescued a few months ago), and noticed that there were 1-2 white strings hanging from the bottom of his gills (see picture). Anyone know what they might be? Could they be worms? He also...

    Hi guys, some of you may know what this is about already. My new betta just died of worms ( suspected not known) and I have to make sure to wash his tank out extremely well. I have boiled his tank and plants and everything that was originally in with him, I have also put a lot of salt in as...

    Hello fellow betta lovers, I have a question regarding (unwanted?) worms that gather on the glass in my tank (pic below). I first noticed them wriggling around a few months ago. I did a bit of research and concluded that they were probably freshwater nematodes. They range in size from about 2...

Is this a big problem or what? I really am worried about these tiny worms he is eating. And there is this white...

    So I have a heated, filtered, divided 20L, 3 bettas, java fern, watersprite, and amazon frogbit. The floating plants came off Amazon a month ago, and I didn't bother to quarantine them.

    Hi fish forum! I have one betta, Bertram, in a 2.6 gallon tank (cycled.) He's been in the tank for about four months now, and a few weeks ago, I started noticing small circular white worms in the gravel and on the plants in the tank. I read up on planaria (I'm not 100% sure that's what it is...

    I have heard so many different answers to the question of what to feed a betta and how often. First on what to feed. Pellets, flakes, freeze-dried? Which is best? I currently have the typical pet store pellets, and some freeze-dried blood worms. Also, frequency. I have heard many sites...

    A few days ago I noticed my betta Aries was not his normal active self. He was just floating along the top braced up against the divider. I removed him from the tank to examine him and I noticed tiny hairlike strings near his mouth and face. I put him in the hospital tank and started to...

    So, a couple months? I noticed a single white worm looking thing on the bottom of his tank [it's currently bare bottom]. I sucked it out and kept an eye on my betta Kirei but pretty much forgot about it until last night. I cleaned his tank the night before last and while looking in on him to...
  19. Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a 2.5 gallon tank with an anubias nana, dwarf hair grass, and a java fern. All seem to be growing well, but this morning I woke up and found something that resembled a worm growing out of the tips of two of the leaves of the java fern. They were not moving, however. Is this something I...

    I saw them yesterday, but didn't realize they were alive. Then today i saw one darting around on the glass. They weren't there before that I ever noticed. They are barely a millimeter long and they inch along the inside of the glass. They remind me of plankton I saw in a science class once. I...
