We noticed tonight that one of our crayfish has these tiny little wormlike creatures on it, on the head and near the eyes. They are kind of an opaque white.
I looked online, and it does seem to be a parasite of some kind, likened to a leech, and from what little I found online, they don't bother the crayfish??
My question is though, will these gross little buggers transfer over to my fish? I have a bunch of fish in the tank and I'm worried that they'll get infested with these things too.
I have 2 crays in the tank, but as far as I can tell, only one of them has these worms.
Can someone please help? I'm really worried about my fish, but I don't see any info online that says whether or not these things will transfer to my fish. Is there something I can put in the water to kill these? I don't want to get rid of the crayfish, nor do I want to kill them, I just want the worms gone.
