Little White Worms
I am new to the list and in process of setting up a 29g
planted discus tank. Substrate is Profile Pond soil-Verm-
Profile with a mixture of cleaned generic sand and Black
Beauty sandblasting sand. Dropped a couple of teaspoons of
Osmocote (sp?) within the verm. Using Tetra Floral and black
water extract. About a cup of aquarium peat hangs in a bag in
the tank. Magnum 350 and bio-wheel (I know probably too much
CO2 loss, but first I needed to be concerned about biological
filtration). Assorted swords, cryps etc., medium to
heavily planted, 4w/gal fluorescent lighting, yeast/CO2
injected. pH 6.6-6.8, KH4, GH6, 0 Nitrites, Ammonia, and
<10ppm nitrates. All plants are doing well. The tanks been up
for about 4 months. Still trying to master the chemistry.
6 tetras, 2 cory-cats, and some alge eaters ??
Sorry thought the long background may be important...
Anyway, I noticed some, well 2, very hair-thin white worms squiggling
in the water column last night. They are about 1/2" long.
Should I be worried about these ?? Anyone know what they are.
How do I rid them from the tank ( a planted tank?) Was
planning on purchasing 3-4 small discuss in the next week or
two but will delay this until I can get a handle on this
Thanks for the wealth of knowledge on this list
