We have found worms in our facility (actually, amongst new-born 
clutches) which tend to feed on the embryos as well as kill adults - 
these end up emaciated before they die. We've tried treating the 
system with fluke tabs but this doesn't seem to have been very 
effective. Right now, we're trying to determine what this worm 
actually is. It's about 1-2mm in length, is segmented and spiny. 
We should be very grateful if anyone has any idea as to what this 
organism is, and/or how it could be treated. Please let me know if 
you have any further questions or would like to see a picture of it.

Thanks in advance,
