    Agree with Tobes. Flatworm. They can become a bloody nuisance though. Get rid of it before it breeds is my suggestion

    Yip looks like flatworm. I had them and cut down on feeding for a while and they have disappeared thank goodness. I also use iodine every day and perhaps that has also helped keeping them at bay.
