      Who knows what an anchor worm looks like?

      I took a picture of some of my fish and someone noticed a Y on one of them and told me it was an anchor worm. I've never seen one.
      Can anyone confirm?

      I guess that could be another name for children too.

      I hope that's a small fish... That's the longest one I've ever seen.

      Oh poooo, don't tell me it IS one.
      Yep , that's a little fishy. He's about 5 inches, I think.

      sedate it, use PP at the base where the worm attached itself and gently pull it with tweezers. Treat the pond with dimilin or Anchor's away(2 treatments/14days apart). Watch the area for secondary infection.

      If it is an anchor worm it won't move to another place on the fish , right?
      So it should still be in the same place tomorrow.
      Maybe I'm in denial but I don't think it is a worm. But anything is possible.
      I was looking thru all the photos I took and there is nothing on any of the other fish. That I can see anyway. I can zoom in pretty good.
      I did notice the Iris plant leaves look like strings when they rot.

      I'll check them out though and do what needs done.

      I don't think it is an anchor worm. I've never seen one that long.

      It looks like one, but its too big.
      I think its something floating on the surface of the water.

      Definately check the fish in the am.

      Y'all are making me feel much better now.
      The pictures I've found of anchor worms on the web look more like koi wiskers stuck to the sides and belly of the fish. Not like thin strings.
      I think it's debris.
