    What is that?

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Found that while doing my daily check-up.It was crowling on my shroom rock.
    Did not seem to bother it but...we all know to not take chances in this hobby.

    I tried to look up for info but did not see anything close.It looks like some kind of blood sucker with pointy head/tail.I took it out my DT and it's now in a small pail.

    Anyone has seen/know about thoses creatures?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunatly the little guy did not make it in the bucket.Maybe i should of put it in my sump instead,but i did not know better.I dont like to take chances.
    I had bad experience before with a "green" worm that were eating my feather dusters.

    Liv,is that the 'common worm" name for that worm ?

    Thanks!
