Advertisement I was curious as to what nematodes would look like, as I read about them but haven't seen them. I recently purchased a wild caught C. ritae and today I noticed TINY white worms in her water. They looked more like tiny white maggots with little darkish black heads. The enclosure is a cube style from Michael's, and there's cocohusk fiber dirt with holes drilled in the sides for airflow. The holes aren't that large. Could a small fly lay eggs and maggots hatching in 1-2 weeks? Or is it possibly nematodes? I've SEEN her drink from the dish numerous times but I don't see white stuff from her mouth. Now I'm freaking about parasites, yikes.
