    Default Planted terrarium - earthworm + small larvae + yellow dots

    Hi, I just went through my planted terrarium which houses my gags and when I lifted their heavy food dish from the substrate found a slim, long, brownish earthworm in the bottom?! Then I looked inside the dish (it's a big feeding dish I use it to hold the contact lenses cases where I srve the CGD) and there was some stale water in the corner (from the misting) with a lot of small larvae swimming around :S has I got worried I started really looking at the substrate and now I can see a lot of yellow little balls spread everywhere?!

    What can this be? Should I be worried? Is it case to remove the plants and substrates and everything??

    That's the beauty of an ecosystem. Lots of interesting creatures interacting with each other. It's probably fine. Some of those yellow dots may become mushrooms which I think are really cool in a planted environment. Enjoy.
