So I found this little guy and a few dozen of its brethren when I was cleaning my tank filter. At first I thought it was a Daphnia but it swims around "faf boi" more like a little shrimp. So I'm thinking seed shrimp maybe. It doesn't really look like any of the pictures I've found. Any help would be much appreciated.
So, I just recently got a new dwarf lily bulb, which has been doing great! It’s been growing at a rapid pace and I’m very happy. The one issue I had was my betta picking at it, but I immediately stopped it. I put a glass cover over it and it’s been growing fine. However…. Taking a closer look, I can see what my betta was really after. There are these little white transparent “bugs” on my bulb that go in and out of it. I’m not sure what these are and if I should be concerned for my fish and plants? Is this normal on bulbs? Are they just harmless little organisms? I bought this bulb from aquarium co-op so idk if this is normal or if these are from the dirt it’s packed in. Here’s a video I took and a picture for reference: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/592535000197496835/869292243427684362/video0.mov and here’s a better close up of one of the bigger bugs: Any input is appreciated!
