But with this type , keeping flat worms going so it does not starve does not make any sense at all.jonnywater said:Well its not really complicated to keep what they eat at a minimum level for them to survive after they have depleted the excess that you are trying to get rid of.
but it is basically dooming the animal. your/our tanks can not keep them going with out slowly starving to death.jonnywater said:To me it's not cool to go telling someone that they are going to basically doom an animal from the beginning because people dont understand that these animals have no bones at all and use water as a weight source to hold themselves down. I shouldnt have to pay for the mistakes that others made. I will keep up my flatworm population slightly for awhile - then send him to the nearest squarium.
I said that I dont understand why THAT one was swimming around. Truth be told, after reading, their floating has nothing to do with anything. It is merely a way of adapting to the enviroment. Outside of that, I have read and studied everything about these creatures that I can.Rick O said:From the other thread:
