Planaria get up to 3/8" long, are flat (hence the common name "flatworm"),
and have a diamond-shaped head with two obvious "eyes." If you have them,
get rid of them before they get in a breeding tank, as they are expert egg
Tinier, thread-like worms are one of several (probably harmless) species,
and not usually something to worry about.

Its been two weeks, the fry hatched and are growing big. But I see lots of there little tiny white worms/microorganisms. Are they in any way harmful to the fish or just more food?
