    White "worms" ?

    Everyone seems to get those! A non-harmful way to get rid of them is to sumerge your vft overnight (24 hours minimum, I did 48) and they are all dead! If ya get them again, do it again! Your vft may like it. But keep in mind they will kill your VFT they eat anything aro0und them including plants.
