Just turned on the light this morning to find quite a few microscopic creatures on the glass. I did just purchase Sunkist shrimp. Babies? Or possibly something else that came from the pet store. It's a heavily planted tank that's been cycling for about a month with no fish. The shrimp were the first inhabitants.








Anyone know what they are? What to do with them? Harmful/Helpful?

Bump:

Does that one work? The pictures work for me on all my devices so I'm not sure what the issue is.

Agreed, cyclops. They often come in on plants that came out of tanks and potentially from the water the shrimp were in.


Even the smallest of shrimp babies (larvae/zoes) are still larger than that! Although hardly by much, and they're much more difficult to see compared to cyclops...
