great lense you have Due to the amount of hairs and their spacing, as well as the wormsegments, the pic's schow, I dare to say those belong to the group of Oligochaeta (very large group, also garden worms belong to), which are harmless in your tank and are indeed a very fine food for fry and small fish like tetra. Nematodes have no hair, and thsoe are not so easy to claim harmless.
I can watch tetra spottimg and eating them, loaches eyesight seems not withz sufficient resolution. I see them rarely but put them under the mikroskope, and they look like yours. I also found cyclops in my tanks, also good food.
I did show pic's at LOL of my worms under the microscope, but can't locate the thread.
German drinkingwater contains water louse (sowbug/slater), it's all biological ok and not dirty just looks akward
Even found some old pic's of my worms, which I guess I caught with live tubifex, 6 years ago, and the did not harm, I am actually happy to have them, unfourtunately, I have not spotted them for almost 2 years now:
Chefkeith, do you think the tubifex would have been providing constant live food to your tank or did they stay so low down nobody would have gotten to them?
Nancy, they sure look like spines or even spikes but infact, they are delicate hairs.
Everyone else thank you!!
Palaeodave, Wasserscheu, I am so clueless on what these are but i am happy they are natural and not any harm or side effect of any problems.
