Worm identification in aquarium


Recommended Posts

My understanding is that those are likely Macrostomum. Ecology similar to snails like MTS. Harmless/beneficial, "invasion" likely due to too much food (detritus). 

If they suddenly are leaving the substrate, it may be that it's crowded but possibly indicating unfavourable conditions e.g. low oxygen.
