Hello,

I work in a lab at MIT and we are looking to expand our species of planaria for research purposes. If anyone (especially internationally) thinks they have any planarians that we don't already have, we would gladly pay for them to be shipped to our lab. Please send us pictures of your worms!

I had thousands of them years ago but don't keep fish now so can't help. Unless you accept the picture of my finger with 2 dots drawn on it :) They look like smiley faces.

Is it dangerous to the fish and shrimp though?

planaria eat fish eggs but don't affect fish. no idea about them affecting shrimp, they didn't touch my glass shrimp but might attack smaller species of shrimp.
