This beautiful torch has been struggling for weeks now and I'm honestly shocked that it didn't turn to brown jelly or bail out completely. It hasn't eaten a thing.

I decided to give it some heavier flow this morning and was surprised to see it's tentacles sprouting for the first time in weeks.

Then out of nowhere, I noticed this creepy thing dangling from its mouth this morning and captured the moment that it spit it out. Any ideas what it is??

No, it wouldn't poop a flatworm. It looks like it's starving. No clue what's going on with it.
What if a flatworm crawled into it's mouth and was irritating it? I did the Bayer dip yesterday, which maybe killed it?
