Hi, I have a small 1.5 gallon tank with 1 mystery snail in it. It has a small filter, couple of small aquarium decorations, and gravel and that's it.
I just gravel vacuumed today and after I was done and adding fresh water I noticed a good bit of tiny brown or black bugs I guess. They are swimming about in the gravel but I don't see them anywhere else in the tank. They are about the size of two dots a pencil would make.
I feed my snail sinking algea wafers, fish flakes, pellets, and sometimes freeze dried bloodworms.
Also, there used to be 5 ghost shrimp in the tank but they all suddenly died about two weeks after I got them, but the snail has been fine.
I just want to know if these are a parasite or something that could harm my snail, and if so how to get rid of them. Thanks for any help.
