creepy crawlies in my tank!
I have a 30g with 2 guppies and 4 otto cats in. I'm not sure if my tank has cycled or not, its 6 weeks old but my readings are nitrite 0, amonia 0 and nitrates 0. Fish all seem happy.
Doing my regular water change today I was filling my bucket with clean water from the tap and noticed some tiny little brown things squiggling around in the sink. I took a closer look and there was about 20 of them swimming in the tank water that I had just poured down the sink!
Is it normal for these maybe parasites to be living in the tank? Is it harmful to the fish? What are they and should I be getting rid of them???
I have attached a photo, not very clear but its all i've got.
oooh, i'm all itchy.
