Noticing strange things in my tank
Okay so I've had my 3g picotope running for about a month now. This is my first planted tank. The plants are growing well, but I still don't have any shrimp in there yet. I have eco-complete for my substrate, AC30, and run the light for 8 hours a day. I have started to notice little lines appear on the tank wall. They are very small and thin, what are they? But that's not all I have noticed. Today I noticed little worm-like creatures squirming around in the water until they could latch on to something. What the heck are they? They almost look like mosquito larvae but I don't think they are. So how can I get rid of these two problems? Would it be safe to put shrimp in there if this problem persists?
