    Depends on the species.
    Typical Acoel flatworms (red planaria) are about 1/8"...

    Looks like a bristleworm. they are harmless and actually good for the system. quite ugly though! I hear they can get pretty darn big too!

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Yup,
    That's a standard, run of the mill, good old, bristleworm.
    He's a good guy in your tank that will eat excess and rotting food and decaying matter.

    He just freaked me out cause I never thought a bristleworm could be THAT big... I did a quick "google" search and WOW they can get big...

    All the others I've seen were always pretty small...

    Thanks for the quick response (again)!

    I have a similar one but it is RED! Can you ID it? Is it bad or good? Will the bicolor pseudochromis eat it?
