Looking at one of my snails I am seeing something that might be a parasite or worm. Whatever it is I don’t think it is supposed to be there. Also to note there was another on this snail further up on the filler but it is now gone and the feeler has experienced what seems to be some damage as a result. They are in a QT tank by themselves. Also I have several small thin hair like worm in the tank that I have been fighting ever since i moved the snails into it. I have used parzipro and even salt in the tank to try and fix this. I have also emptied the tank sterilized the plants, filter, and rocks in a bleach solution, also done two 90-100% water changes and cleaned the sand twice. Also have am not adding any food of any sort but I can’t seem to get rid of the worms. From doing some research on the internet i thought they were detritus worms but I’m not sure now as what I did should have killed them out right? Are the small hair like worms and the white egg or worm like spot on the snails related? Here are some pics a one of the snails.
