CT_ Posted April 1, 2022 Share Posted April 1, 2022 (edited) My newish (~2months now) shrimp cube had what I thought were random extra fine threads floating in it. for a few days i thought maybe i just got a linty sock or something too close. but it never went away and the numbers went up so i took a closer look and they're alive. They're thinner than a human hair and 3-10mm long and they just float around in the water colum. I have the mini HOB that ACO sells. This tank has a decent number of plants, which is where I assume they came from, but I feed it so little. a minimal dusting of bacter AE and either a tiny bit of snow flake (part of one pellet) or a single pellet of xtreme shrimpee for about 12-20 neo's. Do these things hatch from eggs? Is that why there's all of a sudden so many? I don't really see them on the substrate, and in total there really hasn't been much food added to the tank. I realize they're "healthy" but it bugs me to see them swim around in the water column. I'm thinking of dropping in a couple medaka fry when they hatch out in a week. I'm trying to figure out if they'll be able to eat the floating worms but not baby shrimp which I expect to be hatching around the same time. Has anyone tried something like this?
