Help! Worms in my shrimp tank!


Recommended Posts



I need help identifying the worms in my shrimp tank. They appeared after I added some new moss, which was imported from Asia.

The worms are brown and 1 inch long. They stick vertically from the substrate. Please see pictures below, with a Ramshorn snail and shrimp for size comparison.

I would like to know, are they dangerous to humans? How can I get rid of them?


Thank you, I appreciate your help.
