I've got a 600 litre planted tank, with just a couple of coryodorus and a rainbow shark (havn't yet populated it fully) but have noticed in the last few weeks that there are a number of small green worms (almost transparent) with a sucker that are clinging to the glass - some were on my rainbow shark yesterday and am getting worried.

How do I get rid of these? There are too many and my tank is too large to remove them all by hand - please help!

Cheers

Rohan

Sounds like leeches.
Get copper Ich medication... does a number on these invertabrates...
fluke tabs will work as well.

Except that you said some were on your fish, I'd have thought you were describing green hydra, Hydra viridis. Go to www.google.com (you should keep it in a sidebar), switch to IMG (image) mode and enter "Hydra."

Is that it?
