Yesterday I purchased some plants from my LFS and had to run off to a party so I just dropped into my shrimp tank. Today when I was removing the plants from their pots, one of the pots had 2 creatures drop out and scurried around the container trying to find somewhere to hide. They look like a shrimp but with long 'hairs' front and back and have 'legs' like a brine shrimp/centipede. Only about 2-3mm in length. Should I be worried about these things inside my shrimp tank? I didn't put them back but there could be others in my tank as I didn't 'disinfect' the plants before I dropped them in.
