    Hey everyone, I was doing a trimming on one of my aquariums and noticed this "bug-like" creature walking around. Did some research but couldn't find anything that looked similar except a dragonfly nymph or a damselfly nymph idek... Any help would be great as I don't want an infestation of...

    I turned on my lights yesterday in my nano shrimp tank, and saw a few of these things hopping around on the glass. I have no idea what they are, and whether they are harmful or not. Anyone have any experience with these? I read they might be isopods or something but I really have no idea...

    I have a planted aquarium and it is just 15 days old. I found small white dots swimming after the first couple of days. And now I see a lot of them. Attached the photo of the same here in the post. Can find it on the tiger lotus leaf, small white dots. They do swim well. Any help in identifying...
  4. Plants
    Until now, I've had an absolutely beautiful aquarium. All live plants, and MANY of them. They've grown so lush, I've cut off trimmings and planted more around the tank. I always got many compliments by visitors, and the fish had so much to swim around and hide behind. My brother had given me...

    Hello! This is my first time posting here so I hope I can get some help. I recently set up a nano planted tank (around 3 gallons) and I recently found two types of bugs in the tank.

  9. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I can only try to describe the critters that have infiltrated my tank. Once upon a time we had a fry tank that got infested with snails, so instead of flushing the snails (and ending up with teenage mutant ninja snails) we set up a dwarf puffer tank. Now that the fry are grown....the former...
  10. Fish
    Big surprise tonight as I think I spotted a dragonfly nymph in the tank. It's my understanding that they may eat small fiash and shrimps so I want it out asap. The tank is heavily planted and I don't fancy a full scale search and destroy. Any suggestions on how trap or eradicate the little...
