 Hi  Pran,
 
 They  are  caused  by  over  feeding  in  an  aquarium  .The  worm's  are  called  Planeria.
 
 To  remove  the  worms  do  a  water  change  and  siphon  them  out.  Also  reduce  the  quantity  of  feed  for  the  fish.
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 You  mean  heater?  and  the  temperature  that  needs  to  be  set....?
 
 well  the  cause  is  over  feeding,  and  until  this  is  reduced  the  problem  will  persist.  Follow  what  Nayak  has  said.

 Hey,
 
 Its  common  in  arowanna  and  discus  tanks,  use  a  pleco  and  it   will  get  rid  of  this  worm.
 
 Happens  due  to  uneaten  food  left  over  and  bad  water  quality  and  its  not  planaria.

 @aquadip2000
 i  was  suggesting  the  ideal  temp  for  the  heater  to  set..
 
 @aquadip2000
 i  think  its  due  to  over  feeding.....
 and  doing  the  water  change  weekly  by  75%..

 Hello  ,
 
 I  am  trying  to  find  a  good  method  to  get  rid  of  planaria.
 
 I  have  them  in  my  tank.  since  quiet  a  long  time..  i  have  be  doing  the  frequent  water  change  and  the  feeding  is  also  not  much  not  sure  why  i  haven't  been  able  to  get  rid  of  them.
 
 setup  is  about  500ltrs  tank
 1  goldfish(giant  large)
 1  discuss(  large).
 
 Filteration  is  the  inbuilt  top  filter  and  an  in  tank  power  filter.
 water  change  is  about  20%  every  wed  and  sat.
 
 Feed  only  tetrabits.
 
 this  setup  is  almost  4  years  old.  no  change.
 
 Vik
