moving white dots on the glass?
This morning while doing a head count for the fry, I noticed what looked like a little white dot moving on the glass? I really could not tell if it was really something alive or maybe an air bubble from the filter? Any idea what it could be????
Did you add any live plants recently?..............Hard to say without a pic, but maybe you had snails eggs hitch hike in on a new plant?..........Do you only see one, or is there quite a few of them?
Was not able to get a picture, it was on the glass in back of all the plastic plants that I have in the tank for the fry. It was so tiny and moved so fast that I really could not tell if it was just air or something moving. I will look again closely when I get home from work. It did not look like eggs as it moved ( almost like it darted from one place to another).... Sorry if I am not explaining it good enough. Again, I will check when I get home.
if its moving fast, then its not a snail of any kind........Might be some type of copepod..................no need to be worried if thats what it is..........the fish in your tank will find them as a tasty snack!............How are your fry doing?
What is a copepod?? My fry are doing great, I finally saw them eating yesterday. They are so cute!!!!
The other fish are not constantly stalking them so hopefully they will make it.
Basically, freshwater copepods are freshwater plankton.
Are they harmful, are they caused by something I did wrong, will the fish eat them, do they populate? sorry for so many quesitons but I looked it up and did not find much info.
If what your seeing in your tank is a copepod, they are harmless to your fish and will be eaten by your fish as a snack......From what i read about them, if you have them in your tank, its a sign of good water quality and its nothing to be concerned about
Ok, so I just spent at least 30 minutes staring at the tank and of course I did not see the white thing again. It does look like I have more fry than I thought more like 6-8. I initially thought it was 4-5. I cant get over how cute they are!!!!
I will do my routing partial water change tomorrow and make sure to get a good luck at the glass....
I can't see copepods moving on the glass. What I am thinking here is limpet.
