 Hi  All,
 
 After  leeches,  now  a  new  discovery,  twice  when  I  was  cleaning  my  tank  with  the  gravel  cleaner,  when  I  dug  a  little  deeper,  a  thread  like  creature  came  out  wriggling,  first  time  I  thought  must  have  been  a  root  that  was  moving  due  to  the  current,  but  yesterday,  I  think  it  was  some  worm,  I  dont  know  what  it  might  be....  harmful  /  not
 
 Please  do  let  me  know  what  is  to  be  done....
 
 Mods:  Not  sure  if  this  is  the  right  forum,  but,  I'm  not  discussing  any  vertibrate  for  sure.
 
 Regards

 Wood  like  to  add  that  both  times  it  got  siphoned  out  very  quickly  before  I  could  do  anything  (photo  or  atleast  observe),  also  that  it  couldnt  swim  against  the  siphoning  current...

 if  white  thread  like  worms  then  they  are  planaria  worms.  caused  due  to  excess  food.  clean  the  gravel  throughly  to  get  rid  of  them.

 They  looked  more  brown  than  white...  and  i  think  I  underfeed  more  than  the  other  way...  not  sure  if  they  are  planaria  worms,  and  also  read  up  that  they  are  harmless  (if  they  are  planaria)  and  exist  due  to  dead  fish  /  overfeed  and  also  got  a  list  of  fish  that  eat  them  and  the  medicines  that  kill  them...  but  not  sure  and  want  to  avoid  all  medicines  unless  inevitable.  Will  look  out  during  the  next  water  change  and  post.
 
 Thanks  Kunal  for  the  tip
