Red worms!!! Are they bad


Recommended Posts

@Kristen they look like bloodworms to me. They could have hitchhiked in on a plant or substrate. If I'm correct, bloodworms are not harmful to your shrimp or snails. Some of your fish if you have them may seek them out to eat so if you have those you can leave them in the tank.

The internet says that sometimes they show up more often in low flow situations. If you want to get rid of them or reduce any explosion of population vacuuming more often and turning up the flow on your filtration for a while may help. That would also mean you want to avoid overfeeding so they don't have anything to eat.
