Cyclops, Copepods problems

Recommended Posts

hoang1912

Just have a look my tank and notice that Cyclops, Copepods and Freshwater Limpet population increase really fast.

According to Dean's post http://www.shrimpkeepersforum.com/forum/showthread.php/1479-Aquarium-Tank-creatures-101 These guys are no problems but it look so annoying :dejection:.

Anyone know how to kill these thing? Does Internal Parasite Clear can wipe them out?

Fish will eat them all, put in some Endlers or Guppy's & they'll eat them :victorious:

Do the Endlers really eat them? I have a tank with the same problem, no shrimplets but the water is ph5.6 can Endlers cope with that?

Yeah I've had some chase & probably eat shrimplets :dejection:

I've never had them in such low ph before on purpose but I think they might have been that low once or twice before WC's. :encouragement:

It's the limpets that I'm having trouble with, also internal parasite clear doesn't hurt them at all

Maybe, if you acclimatize them slow enough they might be ok?

I have endlers in a pH 6.5 tank, not sure if that helps you at all

Either learn to love them, get handy with a BBS net or invest in a microfish with a smaller gob.

If you really dislike them that much, a couple of shrimplet losses shouldn't matter. I intentionally put them in my shrimp tank to feed my Channoides :)

      I've tried numerous times starting with healthy green moss and ended up with mostly dingy brown green bunches.  It's just floating on it's own, tried lower light, lower temps, ferts not that it needs it as it can get it's nutrients from the fish poop.  I'll stick with Subwassertang and Christmas Moss for the shrimps to graze off of!

      The Ram bebe's are growing!  There were over 100 to start in the main tank and I turkey basted a baker's dozen into my quarantine tank.  My first egg to fish experience.  I am culling the weakest and hope to get down to 10 as I would like to keep them.  I've read a good ratio is 3 females to 1 male for compatible mates?  I won't find that out until they are almost full grown unfortunately.  Now when they spawn I take the rock and scrape the eggs right into the Giant Danio tank, they seem to like caviar!  😁  When the fry have eaten enough live BBS they get wonderful pink bellies!

      @Steensj2004 I have older DSLR's.  A Canon 5D and 7DII    The 2 lens I use for Aquarium are 18-55mm and a 100mm macro.  I am still learning. 🙂
