    White Worms

    I was cleaning out my tank last night and noticed a white worm in the substrate. I don't know where it came from and was wondering if I should be worried..

    boss, it's hard to tell what it is, but I wouldn't worry- 95% of all the critters that arrive in your tank are at least safe and probably beneficial. I think one's attitude towards critters should be; good until proven nasty as opposed to the more common; nasty untill proven good.

    I agree with Reefmutt .. Don't be in too much of a hurry to worry about stuff you discover in your tank after dark. Most are safe to have there and are just going about their after hours business. If their bad you'll know soon enough.
