Will this worm harm my fish??

Postby Jacaust » Sat Apr 08, 2017 5:16 am

Hello all,

I've noticed a red/brown worm in my substrate and I'm not sure if it will harm my fish? It's around a half an inch long and appears to be eating the leftover food in the gravel.
I've read that some worms are harmful and others can just compost leftover food..
Also, if he is harmful how would I get rid of him without moving/stressing my fish?
I have a Betta, 3 guppies, 2 sucker fish and 2 mystery snails, 10 gallon tank. Water parameters are fine and have just done a 50% water change, this is when I noticed him as I'd stirred up the gravel with the vacuum :?
