As I described in my goldfish blog, after growing plants and snails for six weeks in my dirt planted 125 gallon tank, I ordered six small Orandas off Aquabid. I didn't notice until after they shipped that they were only going UPS ground and would spend 48 hours in one bag. They came with ragged tails and fins and white spots and blotches, and all died within three days. On day three I just noticed for the first time a 1/4 inch white worm crazily swimming around the tank -- until I got him anyway. I also got in an order of Anubias and 10 more nerite snails at the same time as the new fish. Is the crazy little worm from the fish? Also, can a swimming worm like that infect my snails? How long can the little nasties live in a fishless tank? I have a SunSun 13W UV Sterilizer on the way so that will start running in the next two days. Thanks in advance for your help.
