Small white particles?!?!
 
Hi guys, I have a shrimp tank consisting of red crystal shrimps and red cherry shrimps. Lately I've noticed there are many very verry veryyyyy small, round moving white particles in my tank. I was wondering if you know what they are and if they are dangerous to my shrimps. I couldnt find any information online, so thanks in advance!

Sounds like babies! RCS babies are sooooo tiny, they are like flea size. I hope you've not taken them out. Congrats on baby shrimp :lol:

Okay, Thanks for the advice! I was worried that I've received some type of flea bacteria from the RCS seller's tank. I hope you're right, and it turns out to be RCS babies :D

That's what it will be. :lol: I bought some moss from my fish store that had shrimp in the tank. Sure enough, I lucked out and found baby RCS in with the moss, which I added to my shrimp tank.

If your conditions are right, you'll have lots and lots of babies over time. They are easy to breed.
