ok i found a critter in my nano that doesnt resemble anything in the first post. i originally thought it was a daphnia but it has hind legs.
Its about the size of one of the eco complete granules and climbs and moves over the substrate as a gorilla would move.
Its white in color and seems to be the only one in the tank so far as I know. The plant is heavily planted with a driftwood and 5 adult and 3 juvie cherry shrimps and oto. there are a dozen mts as well.
hope someone can help ID it.
i thought of trying to capture it but it crawls very quickly. It only travels on the gravel and does not appear to swim or go against the glass. Kinda resembles a flea but google searches came up empty.
