Hydra & nematodes spotted !
bort posted a topic in Shrimp Health & CarePretty sure i spotted a hydra today. Thought it was a mutated limpet as i have many of those atm. But it had limbs that were moving and when i tried to squish it against the glass they retracted. Couldnt spot anymore after that. They mustve hitched a ride from the new anubias driftwoods. So so so stupid.. i just dunked them in cause i was in a rush ! And to add to that.. spotted nematodes just on the waterline. Anyone know where to source that 'internal parasite clear' in sydney ? Or know of any other cures that i can source in sydney immediately. These pests are unsightful !!! Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Shrimp are dying and tank has many pests
Sophia24 posted a topic in General Questions/DiscussionsHi everyone, I really need some help with my tank, I left someone to take care of it while I was vacationing and it's been going downhill ever since. I have a relatively new planted fluval edge 12 gallon, shrimp only for now. My shrimp have been dying and now I have 1 berried female, 2-3 medium shrimplets, and 3 baby snails, unfortunately there are also: slithering white wormlike things (planaria?), 20 ish tiny (1-2 mm) hydras, tiny unknown nematodes, and numerous freshwater limpets. I don't know what I've done wrong to mess it up this bad and currently I'm thinking to move the remaining shrimp and snails to a smaller temporary tank and completely redo the larger one. Please help, any advice is welcome.
