English term or phrase: lernia, anchor worm, red garden earth worm, white
Parasites that can be introduced via live foods include Ichthyophihirius (causing white spot disease), Lernia (anchor worm), Argulus (fish louse), as well as viruses and bacteria. That痴 why you shouldn稚 add live aquatic foods to the aquarium or even the pond.

But where live food is needed to do such things as condition the fish for breeding, it痴 best to use non-aquatic live food such as red garden earth worms, aphids from unsprayed roses, small land snails, slugs and flies. None of these creatures will carry aquatic parasites.

You can also buy cultured live foods such as white worms, micro worms and fruit flies.

These fish have two dorsal fins, of which the front one can be erected and locked in place. Their long faces and terminal mouths are designed for picking invertebrates from the reef.
