Anyone live near a lake?
I'm looking for some little invertebrates to colonise a paludarium I'm building...
I'm looking for-
springtails- look like fleas.. They like moist soil, and jump like mad. They don't bite though.
freshwater sponges- related to marine sponges.. They look like brown algae, but aren't 'soft', and retain their shape. They die if exposed to air, so these would have to be put in a container underwater.
water striders/water treaders- they can bite, so be careful.
freshwater jellyfish- Yep. They can't hurt humans.
Water louse- Like pill bugs, only aquatic. Also, scary looking.
white specks swimming in the water.
Hydra- Sure, why not. They look like anemones.
Might as well throw in a handful of detritus from the bottom too. I can plant my plants in it.
I am surronded by lakes...the great lakes. I am going to Lake Huron on Thursday. Not to sure what I will find.
If you find some stuff, you should bring it home.
all those stuff looks really weird you sure you know what you want to do with them.the first pic looks like fleas.i can get fleas if you want :lol: jk.btw what fish is your avatar.it looks really neat
i have the lake limpets in my aquarium, but the adults get picked off by my puffer...
Lake Huron is nice near Port Austin, the water was atleast 70, and sandy beach.
