So everytime I do a water change I notice these micro white worms that come out of my 3M sand. There hasn't been any issues with my fish at all. Its like they are harmless. Has anyone had this problem before. They are super super Micro. But they are visible if you look close enough.

i think they are called flukes Ben.
they come from feeding live foods.
if you look closely at the water you may also see them floating around in the tank.

Yeah sometimes I notice micro white worms also when gravel cleaning my tank. But I never had fed live foods. But lately, I haven't been seeing them :D. I would also like to know if this is something I should be worried about :D.
