So - I am back and I had success recently with my shrimp! My three actually turned out to be 2 females and 1 male. Earlier last week I noticed two of them were carrying eggs and just today after placing a new almond leaf, alder cone, rock, driftwood, and 2 new plants yesterday - the sides of my tank (where I have some algae growing) are now hosting small white worm-like things. Are they larvae or worms? If they are larvae - should I leave them be? If they are worms - what are some good fish species to place in a small tank with some shrimp that won't eat the shrimp but keep worms in check?
