hmmm, I have no desire to see what I'm putting my hands into or I won't be able to take care of my tank!
I think hydra look like those huge blow up things that highway car dealers use (in NJ anyway) to attract attention. Ever seen them with the flying hair and arms?
But thank you for the tip. I will keep my eye out. How do you remove them or get rid of them?
I read on line somewhere that adding some coppersafe will slowly kill them off. Not an option for me though since I have a snail, a shrimp and many corys including fry, in that tank.
Speaking of fry, I'm nowsure that is part of the problem. I didn't know exactly how much to feed the fry so I know for sure I overfed them for a few days, and lots of the miniscule fry food dropped to the bottom, hence the water change. Add that to my naturally high pH and I created the perfect habitat for these little buggers.
I wonder if the snail, ghost shrimp, and corys eat daphnia?
I've noticed some funky slimy stuff in my other tank. I thought it was from the snail in the tank but now I'm beginning to wonder...
Ah, live and learn.
