It moves more when touched but its fast and jerks violently around I dont feed much in the tank and the shrimp are okay but I'm worried about this worm thingDoes it do so more when there's more light and or movement? It sounds like mosquito larvae, but they're generally darker. They hang out at top of water and mostly catatonic until disturbed.
I think it might be mosquito larvae the lay they jump around. I did a water change and haven't seen anything since. If they are some type of larvae how would I get them out ??If it is mosquito larvae or dragonfly nymph there may be more so check your tank carefully as they will kill your shrimp
But still need a better photo of it in water to confirm, or dose it look like any of these the first is mosquito larvae 2nd is dragonfly nymph both deadly to shrimp
Thank you so much. I was so worried they would kill off my shrimp.Thats not bad you'll see them thrashing about if theres more,
Thank you for your help
Thank you for your helpMosquite larva forsure.
