Check out the microbewiki link above. Excellent resource for microbe differentiation.

Appears someone got some AMAZING shots of these parasites in shrimp molts... and it's not just in Caridinas. (no surprise there! just, there's at least one or more Neo specific parasites out there that don't bother Caridinas!)


It's in this video below.... actually see them about 12 minutes in. (be sure to watch in 1080p!)



One person thinks they might be apostome ciliates, also seen in saltwater shrimp.


And doing a quick search shows some scary stuff.... and interesting pages!


Appears as if copepods can't even be free of these things.... yeeghads!



And now I feel like molts should never be left in the aquarium...
