red acro bugs or red planaria perhaps???
« on: February 23, 2005, 03:23:37 PM »
I got some live rock from a guy who tore down his tank and with it came lots of hmmmmmmmm problems. :cry:  The little star fish I can deal with....pick them off one by one. The TINY little tan kindof round oval things that I am starting to notice however, is worrying me. I have been looking everywhere for information and I think I have narrowed it down to either the red acro :cry:  or the red planaria worm :cry:  But, I can't really tell. Any info on this stuff from you would be helpful! And, if you live in or around West Richland and want to take a look...let me know. I would love to show you.
Thanks. I am hoping I am overreacting, but not so sure.

Vicki do you have any wrasse's in your tank? The 6 line and other more exotic breeds lie the Leopard will eat the red planaria from what i have read from The Reef Aquarium By DelBeek & Sprung

No, I don't have any wrasses in my tank. I am waiting to get my sump drilled and up before I add any more fish. I only have my sweet lil' clown fish. Thanks.

Shouldn't be red bugs since you don't have acroporas in your tank.  Could be flat worms, or copepods, or amphipods, or mysis shrimp, or any number of things.
