Yeah, when I had the ones in the bare tank, they were still hard to see, lol. It's basically the egg with a tail for a few days.
They are really tiny.

Yep, my low light java moss looks exactly that.
What does it look like in high light, I wonder.
Time for some googling, I guess.

Cherry shrimp don't eat eggs.
The first time my cories laid eggs, I didn't move them out of the tank.
I had a goldfish at the time, and I thought he had eaten them all.

My tank has always been extremely low light, and it always had brown algae.
The arguments I heard are that low light is a contributing factor.
Never heard that too much light will cause it.

There's a small mom and pop pet store in my town.
Maybe they'll take them, because I don't think petsmart/petco take them.
I'll have to swing by and see.

In my case, it is now under control, so I don't worry about it. ...

You can always buy a few more females.
Depends on what you want.
Or just take one male back, and bring another female.

Can anyone confirm that's what it is?

That looks more accurate, at least from some pics on Google.
If it is, it seems I might have a shot at getting this little guy to grow!

So, this is a tiny, about 1 inch piece that came attached to some java moss.
I tried burying it in the substrate, but then it floated away, never to be seen again.

Can't wait to see.
