Spent like 2 hours today eradicating every trace if duckweed I could find.... Hope I got it all. That stuff sucks.

While I had the plants out I tried doing a head count. I stopped around 50 (!). Most of them are pretty small still.

l8nite I've been swamped lately, so I have barely looked at my tanks; however, there were babies everywhere in this tank this week! Still a few berried mommas too, so I think everyone is doing quite well. I've just been topping it off with the tap water at work (dechlorinated, of course) - the frogbit & duckweed are out of control in there. Going to need to RAOK some of it soon. Will try to get pictures and update my journals properly next week sometime.

That's reassuring! :-)

l8nite They're so small it's hard to tell what they look like other than "wormy". I noticed a couple of longer (maybe 1") worm-like creatures in the substrate up next to the glass too. They react when I see a shrimp get near them.

Nematodes are characterized by the S shape they make when swimming in the water column.

Planaria like worms also have a name if they don't have the arrowhead. Ravensgate knows the name. I also have these.

l8nite After some more reading, I think it might be Nematodes. There are dozens of them sliming around in there...

Gonna cut back on feedings for this week and see if it helps.

l8nite Came into work this morning and found some baby shrimps in the tank!

I only counted 2 or 3 of them, but they're pretty hard to locate.

I also saw some strange worm-like things crawling around on the glass... any ideas what they could be? My Nerites have been laying eggs all over - I wonder if they hatched? There aren't many insects up here on the 8th floor of my building, but maybe something got into the water?

Looked in the tank today (had to be at work...) and counted THREE berried RCS females

Need to start reading about the hatchlings and what, if anything, I need to do to support them

Been stalking your tanks from the RAOK links you've come a loooong way for 6 months.

I've never graduated from the less than 2.5 gallon noob club :P In fact My own tanks have gotten progressively smaller...
