Tank:
Filtered planted 2 gal jar,
Soil/sand substrate
6500K light above it.
Holds PFR cherry shrimp and a bunch of snails

These creepers don't bother anything, just hanging out on everything that doesn't move. They reproduce by budding, and as far as I can tell, are living off of microorganisms in the water. I'm already planning a Potassium Permaganate dip to pretty much everything in the jar when I shut it down, but I'm really curious as to what these buggers are.

Should I be horribly worried, or are they just creepy?

Hydra, they can sting like jellyfish, also may kill baby shrimp/fry.

Dang, I am missing a few little fry that were accidentally spawned in the tank. Can they sting me? I've squished a few with no injuries, luckily ^^

Permaganate will kill all the shrimp. Let them be or scrape off the glass. They aren't a big deal.

Pretty harmless, really, and very cool.

Warn all cyclops, though.
