Are these planaria? I took a picture of a longer one to get a better look. If it is Planaria, what are some good ways to nip these things at the bud?

 

And on a side note what gender is this shrimp?

That's definitely a female shrimp (and a really pretty one at that :) )

 

Dont worry, that isnt planeria, planeria has a flat triangular head, its just a detritus worm which is a thousand times better than planeria but is also a sign that you could be overfeeding your shrimp :P 

 

Short Term Solution: Manual removal, Scarlet Badis (might eat baby shrimp tho)

Long Term Solution: Reduce feeding, remove uneaten food after 2 hours

 

Hope this helps!!
