New to shrimp keeping

Recommended Posts


Hi I'm new to the hobby I've recently bought some Super Carry Shrimp.
After acclimating the shrimp I've put the shrimp in the aquarium still in the bag to get acclimated to the temperature and after about an hour I emptied the bag in the aquarium.

I've noticed recently that I've got some extremely small white creatures jumping around in the corner of the aquarium on the substrate . They are really small. Does anybody now what they might be?

It could be Seed Shrimp (Ostracoda), maybe Daphnia.

Both are harmless and probably means that your water conditions are perfect.
