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?

But I still dont want to hurt my shrimplet T.T. Are there any other way to kill them since Ineke told that internal parasite clear doesnt hurt them at all

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 :)
