I asked about my tomato plant problem a few weeks ago
I think the problem was due to water snails.Since my last post i have
planted some new tomato plant seedlings to try and find what was wrong
I checked them today ,one had the root sheared or bitten of
One ,looked as if it was dying .I checked the root and found a small
periwinkle like grub about 3 mm long It had a periwinkle like shell and a small
greenish yellow head with small tentacles underneath.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem.Imat a complete loss thank you Ravel

I will try but it is so small .I think it is from the snail family possibly a malaysian periwinkle
I have been looking it up on google and someone said iron potash will get rid of them.
I dont know anything about this stuff but apparently it is safe for fish.I dont know where to
buy it or what dosage so im open to any advice.I doubt if i can get a photo as it is so small
but i would like to thank you for answering anyway Ravel

I wouldn't rush into anything... Sounds like it may be a type of caddis fly larvae. They are very common, look really strange, often with elongated shell and what looks like tentacles or barnacle bits hanging out the end.

Completely harmless.... :)
