Recently cleaned and reset up the aquarium, and got a beta.
What food he doesn't eat falls onto a flat quartz rock in the aquarium. This breeds all kinds of nice stuff.
I was trying to capture images of paramecium when this fellow showed up.
Never seen this one before. The spots are along the length of the body.

Looks like an Aeolosoma sp. Some of them are as you say quite beautiful.

Note that in youtube some posters have used an alternate spelling: aelosoma
