They lay eggs and reproduce easy. Before you put shrimp in throw a few tiger barbs in and dont feed them. they will decimate anything that moves in the tank
I can see the little egg sack lines on some of them, if I put my finger on the glass they jump off, and most of the time I see the filter take them right in :hihi: I don't mind those guys for the most part.The Copepods if they look like tiny tiny air bubbles scattering around on the glad means a good biological bacteria system is going. If they are Copepods which I believe they are harmless to your new shrimp. The shrimp will actually eat the dead bodies because the Copepods life span is real short. Need not worry about them lil guys.
Yeah maybe I will just go for it. I caught the larger white thing and threw it in the big tank and it was devoured. I don't mind the copepods but the microscopic white worms although according to the one thread, are harmless too, they look ugly lol. Maybe I'll throw a zebra or three in and see if they don't eat the copepods and little worms.No you leave some tiger barbs in there for a month and don't feed it for the first three weeks. Nothing will be in there and by that time all the adults that payed eggs will have bestroyed and the eggs will have hatched and been eatin up
