I found a couple of these little guys crawling on the broms in one of my vivs. Any thoughts about what they are? I'm afraid I know the answer but interested in others thoughts. TIA.
It's definitely not a Grindal worm. I have cultured both Grindal worms and white worms, and Grindal worms are simply a warmer-growing species that are closely related to White worms. Grindal worms look just like white worms, but are slightly tan or gray in color, and produce better in 70 degree temps. White worms flourish between 50-60 degree temps.khoff said:The grindal worms in my tank look just like that when curled up and I assure you the ones in my tanks are NOT slugs. The white threadlike worms are whiteworms, not Grindal worms. I was one of the people to answer that thread also. Both are beneficial decomposers though. When it moves, if it stretches its body real thin, its a grindal worm. If it always looks short and fat, its probably a baby slug.
