Hi thanks for having me! I've had yabbies in my aquaponics now for about a year (after losing my marron).
Today I noticed small worm like creatures attached to the shell of one of the yabbies.
They look a little like eggs here, but when I touch them they wriggle around like worms but are quite thick and short.
They are not stuck to the shell at all...easily wiped off
Does anybody know what they are?
Thanks very much.

I would have to see a pic for best identification but it does sound like parasites.

Good luck!

Could they be these flatworms shown in this article?
