What would be the best way to get rid of these critters? They are chewing up my plants.

Seed Shrimp a.k.a. Ostracoda will not eat your plants, they instead clean them.

You may have misidentified the critter you are looking at...

That's what they are. I was looking around the holes on my anubias and java fern and there they were. I even saw one swim like a drunken bee.
The holes on your anubias and java fern are not from the seed shrimps, I promise. It is most likely a nutrient deficiency or too much light for the anubias...

Thanks I need not to worry now. They do get alot of lights. Hey when are you going to have more blue tigers for sale?
