| || | Alien invader eating slime coat off cichlid?!?!?
Just this morning, I realized that there are these little insect-invader things in my tank, and they are eating the slime coat off my beloved tiger oscar, Ozzy! I think it may have happened when I found a cool piece of drift wood while I was camping, took it home boiled it, put it in the tank, but nothing happened. So, many tank makeovers later, I took it out because it didn't fit with what I was creating. A few weeks later, I put it back in, and a billion of these really small dots came flying out of it. I discarded the wood immediately, but the dots have not gone away sense. Except this time, there's 3 times as much. So I went to turn on the tank light this morning, and Ozzy is COVERED in them! Once he managed to shake them off, i saw that there was a spot that was never there before, it was a pale spot, not black or orange. I have no clue what to do about this "invader", but I can wish you all a merry x-mas or hunnika, (spelt wrong), or kwanza. (P.S. The white dots look like tiny lady bugs)
