I recently noticed a gammarus aka scud population in my tank and need advice
So the other day i was doing my weekly water change, after i was finished i was taking the old water to dump when i noticed the scuds. I then checked my tank to notice that they are moving around in gravel. I have done allot of reading and found they really arent bad if you have fish that will eat them which leaves me to my question. My tank isa 50 gallon and has 10 cardinal tetras, 5 silver tip tetras a pleco (dont know what species) and a butterfly fish. i need a fish that will eat the scuds but not bother my tetras. i was told that kuhli loach would work but after i did some reading i found that they prob wouldnt although i would like it if they did so any one have any advice on what fish i can get to keep these guys under control. Or can anyone tell me how to get rid of them i forgot to add i have amano shrimp in the tank so copper wouldnt work
Sorry I can't help you with your question and instead I will answer your question with a question :) I've acquired one scud when I went to my lfs to get water lettuce and since then it has become 3. I was just wondering if you would tell me if you got them all at once or they have bred really fast. I have them in a 10g so I don't want them to take over.
