Is that a nice way to point out what a retard I am, RJ? ;-)

I might have been the source, for I long advocated such a position until I
was told I was full of it. I knew about the white kind. They are obviously
oriented in the water more like a predator. [I'm lucky that any cyclops I
see never get big enough to be a problem. I think Baensch warns about them.]
I should clarify the eye-witness account of the attack:
The mosquito wriggler was, as usual, hanging from the surface by his tail
breathing tube, or whatever it is, when the baby swam very close by. IDK
whether it was visual or water disturbance, but the worm just snapped its
head end over to grab the baby fish. The tail didn't move until I went after
him with the baster.
