Small white worms on glass

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just looking at my nano tank and i notice on the glass swiming with some copapods are these white worms that appear to be some sort of flatworm. They don't really look like any form of harmful planarian but since i didn't add any coral yet i want to make sure so i can treat them before i do.  They sort of remind me of detritus worms from freshwater tanks and if they act the same I'll let them be. What do u guys think?

Thanks:)

It's really hard to tell what exactly it could be without a good picture. 

Since they are living in your nano that doesn't have any corals, you could assume that they probably wouldn't eat corals that you put in.

More than likely some type of nematode. Also probably harmless.

Harmless nematodes. I have some in the 20G AIO frag tank that I just cycled through with no corals or fish.
