Do a search for a thread started by me titled "Worm ID" and you'll see one eating a ff. I heard that they eat isopods too but the isopod population in that tank is still going strong.yea i learned recently that the dead fruit flies on the glass were victims of the nemertean. it would be interesting to actually see one consuming a ff.
Yeah, I've found that dwarf whites still survive and breed just fine despite nemerteans. I have the worms in 3 vivs and all three have large surviving long-term populations of white isos, while the springtails are long gone.Do a search for a thread started by me titled "Worm ID" and you'll see one eating a ff.

There have been some trials to find a predator of them and using othere methods to get rid of them(see this site for example AJCs Frogroom: Search results for nemerteans). I haven't found a good reference for the potential species.Anyone know if terrestrial nemertean's have natural predators? Also, what are the species that we most likely encounter.
I couldn't find much substantial info either on the interwebs. Anyone looking for some post grad work, please do some studies on terrestrial nemerteans, there doesn't seem to be much info out there...
