BUGS in my aquarium!!!
I just purchased some plants for my aquarium - Put them in and now I have seen very little bugs crawling around in my tank. Any idea what kind of bugs they could be? Plants purchased are... 2-hornwort, 2-anubius, and 1-mundo.:-?
They are snails, I have not yet figured out how to effectively get rid of them, if I were you I'd ring up the place you got them from and complain. Also if that last *mondo* is most probably mondo grass, which is not an aquatic plant, and it will die with a week or so...
Thanks for reply... but the bugs have a head, body, and legs.:hmm:
Umm ok, thats odd, I have no clue then what they are sorry
What size are these bugs? Are they all over the tank, or confined to the plants? Identification would be easier if you could post a picture of them.
Whoa dude... like actual bugs? never heard of that... post pics please... this is fascinating...
I saw about 4 bugs when I first put in the plants, that was yesterday. Now today I can't find them... must be hideing. If I see them again I will post pics. Thanks to all who replied.:thankyou:
did they move around like a little caterpillar,or
slide around like a snail with no shell. ?
could be leeches or planaria worms.
There are a variety of freshwater insects. I haven't heard any stories of them appearing in aquariums... What kind of fish do you have in the tank?
i had that too once...just one bug. Like a dragonfly nymph. its not a dragonfly, but the other...cant remember its name. I't'll die eventually, or fly out of ure tank when it matures cos then it has to surface
