 Its  not  Planaria  for  sure.
 Even  I  had  this  in  my  bucket  in  which  I  had  put  a  Drift  wood  for  skinking
 I  fed  them  to  my  bettas   Thumb Up   you  too  catch  them  and  feed  them  to  the  bettas
 Will  be  time  consuming  since  they  are  quite  fast.

 Huh  !!  Now  I  saw  the  worm...  okay  its  definitely  not  a  planaria.  I  actually  thought  those  tiny  bubbles  as  worms.  
 Then  drop  guppy  frys  in.  Or  pick  them  up  yourself..

 Hi,
 
         It's  Called  Nematodes.  There  are  three  types  of  nematodes:  parasitic,  scavengers  and  herbivores.  The  vast  majority  of  nematodes  are  parasitic.  All  three  are  able  to  live  within  the  aquarium  where  there's  insufficient  water  flow  or  where  the  substrate  is  full  of  dirt  and  debris.  however  the  scavengers  are  usually  the  most  common.  If  you  use  any  medications,  All  the  beneficial  bacteria  in  the  filter  will  die.  Populations  of  nematodes  can  be  reduced  or  eliminated  by  cleaning  Filter,  increased  water  changes  and  reduced  feedings.  
 
 
 Regards,
 Muneer  Ahmed  kabir

 Thank  you  so  much  naturelover!  This  worms  looks  like   Nematodes.  I  think  I  need  to  improve  the  water  flow  I  suppose.  I  think  my  feeding  of  oto  frys  are  helping  these  I  suppose.  Going  to  control  the  feeding  and  gona  do  some  filter  cleaning.  No  medication  however

 Planaria  are  flat  worms,  up  against  the  glass.  They  dont  dangle  or  swim  in  the  water  like  other  types.  They  do  have  a  distinctive  triangular  head  and  visible  tiny  eyes.  They  certainly  dont  come  out  in  the  light,  prefer  dark  conditions  feeding  on  excess  food  and  harming  shrimp  fry.  This  photo  doesnt  exhibit  a  flat  worm.
