skhdvm Posted October 15, 2021 Share Posted October 15, 2021 This thing my husband thinks is a bryzoan started growing in one of my tanks around the bulb of plant i brought home from local fish store... i tried scraping it off and siphoning it out but it just seemed to spread and now i have it in 2 aquariums. i have 6 habrosus cories, 12 silver tip tetras and 2 cardinal tetras and a neon blue goby as well as 5 amano shrimp and 1 remaining cherry shrimp in a 29 gallon tank. previously had several dozen neocaradina shrimp also but they have been slowly disappearing over the last several months... i am not sure if the amano shrimp are to blame or other fish in the tank are to blame but had all been together for over a year before the arrival of the bryzoan like thing... there is a fair amount of plant cover in the tank that had seem to protect the shrimpies previously. I use aquarium coop test strips and have very hard water with high alkalinity, pH about 8.4 and no ammonia or nitrite and nitrate about 25ppm and no chlorine, temp a little low around 68. Any ideas what this thing is and how i might get rid of it? i have been feeding a fair amount of brine shrimp but stopping it for weeks doesn't seem to affect it. please help!
