    Help, Fish/snail Tank Is Infested With Leaches/baby Worms

    Yep!  Good thing all my fish are some place safe until I can clean this tank out on Sunday and with some vinegar to disinfect the tank and make sure all those suckers are dead.   Now, I know what to expect next time.  Good thing I don't have a heavily planted tank as yet.

    Plants For Freshwater Fish Aquarium

    So maybe I was adding to much of the Seachem?  I thought that with 3 plants it would take as much as a 40 gallon would take, but maybe with only 3 plants I was giving a bit to much, and probably also why the aquarium water become green as well so I had to get that cleared for the sake of my fish...

    Plants For Freshwater Fish Aquarium

    I have a Hornwort plant and Italian Val.  My lighting I have to admit is not the best at all, but it's on about 12 hours a day.   I know I need better lighting, so maybe that's the problem.
