Hi & hello to all I am new here and looking for help. I have mystery shrimp like creatures that appear to have arrived on some plants I bought. Image hopefully attached. Can someone identify them and tell me if the will harm my goldfish please. Thanks Susikatz
Thanks both. YUK! Bad enough having woodlice in the house. How do I get rid of them please? I guess my 8cm fantail goldfish can eat them but I am hoping to get some neons for my other tank and they appear to be on my plants.
Hi suzicatz, I use Potassium Permanganate, you can get it from Boots chemist in a 25g tub, or probably any chemist, Don't use it much now has I have Cichlids so only have floating plants, instructions how to use it in this link.....http://www.aquajake.com/blog/planting ... g-plants-before-or-after/ It would be interesting to hear if anyone else still uses this method. Oh and welcome to the Forum
how big is it? its not a dragon fly in larval stage is it, we've had them over 1" long, scary when you grab one on a plant, have pincers , harmless I think unless you have very small fish. eventually climb out, dry out on a plant and fly off.
Hi Doddsy. Not dragonfly larva, now I know they are there I've found them in various sizes from almost too tiny to see to about 1cm. I'm pretty sure it is waterlouse looks just like the images mrmouse referred me to. Thanks anyway.
