A shrimplets worst nightmare

Recommended Posts

Found these behemoths in my cherry tank. No doubting these bastards could scoff down a shrimplet.

I've still got them in a separate tub as I want to take pics of them under the dissecting microscope at work.

The largest one is as big as they get, pretty much 25 mm.

Im saying if you found them 2 there must be more you haven't seen in your cherry tank so have you dosed with anything like internal parasite or no planaria?

I'm sure there are more but it doesn't really concern me atm because its my cull tank.

Planaria look white when they are smaller but get more grey as they get larger.

WOW! Just WOW! I would tear them in half and see if the halves continue to grow!

 

On a side note, I once noticed my Otto mow through a section of glass which was covered in Planaria. Once he was done, there wasn't a single one left in that section of glass. I wouldn't say the Otto was "hunting" them, it was definitely more a case of the Planaria getting in the way of some nice delicious algae that was on that section of glass.
