So I walked over to my tank tonight, after the lights had been off for about 45 minutes. Turned them on quick and thought I saw something leap from one side of the rock down onto the sand. Looked closer to see a white sort of bug. Impossible to snap, but if I can describe it, can someone tell me what this is?
It is relatively flat, sort of like "Potato bugs(sp?)". Very white body, two black eyes, thought I saw antennae of some sort but I could be making it up.
What am I?
I have been observing it a little more. So it is about the length of half a ten cent coin, tiny bit less. Was sitting on the sand right now, and quickly jumped and whipped around a rock. Really fast and really far, about 7" in a leap.
Sounds like some kind of pod. They are good to have in the tank.
they are natural scavengers and fish will graze on them as a natural food supply.
Love them and are fun to watch too. If you have a refugium, take a flashlight and look at it when it's on the night cycle (if you have one).
