I set up a new 5g tank recently after a long hiatus from tanks. It currently houses some plants (cabomba and moneywort), snails, 4 cherry and 2 ghost shrimp, some brown algae.... and a butt-load of copepods!
I don't mind them being there.. in fact, I think it's really neat! I've watched a shrimp trying to catch one, and I love that there is live prey in there. There are at least two species, but I have to bring a water sample into my lab and check it out under the microscope.
My question is, where did they come from? I haven't found much information on zooplankton in freshwater tanks.
Getting back into the hobby after... 7 years...
