Well, I'm still here trying to combat my green water problem, and it is nearly cleared up now, I think a few more days and I'll have a hold on it... So, as I was changing 30% of the water last night, I dug the gravel vacuum way to the bottom of the 4-5 inches of gravel, and to my suprise saw a black wormy looking critter being sucked into the bucket!! It definitely has a suction mouth, and appeared to use its mouth to move itself about... It was able to stretch its body from the 1/2 inch I originally saw(was nice & plump at this size) to around 3 inches!! So.... my question is this.. What is this invading creature, and where did he come from?????
Is this a LEECH?? If so, what can I do to make sure I don't have any more?? Is this like really a bad
