I finally got photos of what I think is a peanut worm that only comes out at night and jabs his elephant-like body all around eating.

eww yuck! While cleaning my pumps today, I found a ton of what looks like some sort of worm, they actually are all over the pumps & in the bio filter they look like, for lack of a better description, chromosomes, they are etched into the plastic parts on the pump housings, they are just raised bumps but it left alone they seem to hatch into "something" very very strange looking things! huh.gif blink.gif

I assume you are talking about the bumpy things in your pond filter. Those would be the homes made by caddisfy larvae. Some use rocks, some twigs, some dirt, etc. to make their little houses. I'm not sure but some midge larvae may build homes too.

Oh, those are the things I think may be moss animals. They're all over my filter material. They are definitely not insects like someone told me. They look like moss but they grow in total darkness.
