Hi all! This is a new 10 gallon shrimp tank with 9 brand new shrimp in it. It has been up and running for maybe 2 weeks now. The other day I noticed a ton of these worms all over the glass. Now, my first fear was planeria, but I didnt want to overreact and start treating something without actually seeing if it was a problem. I thought MAYBE detritus worms, but they are wriggling in the water like I've seen them do. All the plants are CO-OP and the shrimp are flip aquatics. I have done no quarantine or meds because I genuinely forget. Shrimp came a day earlier than expected, spent time acclimating, had a covid issue come up... messy weekend. But it's a brand new tank, so I wasnt concerned. So I'm trying to ID these. But I can not for the life of me get a good photo with my camera. Attached are the best I could do tonight. Can I get some guidance as far as: ID, monitoring moving forward, and treatment of necessary? I'm new to keeping shrimp, and just dont want to have potential harm to the fry. Appreciate all the help!
