78, red cherry shrimp only tank with snails of course. Oh also I have a baby bn pleco in the 10gal to!
They are every where I look!
I love babies! Awesome!
I see so many of them in the java moss lol
I'm hungry for some shrimplets
lol my shrimplets are NOT available. but do you want some sauce with that?
Lol. I just had shrimp sushi.
I read that freshwater shrimp are bland, but people in certain places love them, they just spice them.
Actually I ate one tonight*. Very tasty. Called scampi
Lol I don't wanna hear it! It sounds good as long as it isn't my shrimplets https://vimeo.com/172172344
Awe, it is cute!
Also it looks like you have planaria lol
I agree! Very cute.
Is that (planaria) what the little bug looking things are? What exactly are they?
Is that something that is common in a planted tank? I am still artificial plants thinking about crossing over to live so really curious.
Yes it is. They are little white worms and luckily they aren't harmful to fish or shrimp. I probably got them from over feeding a little for the shrimplets. I give them blood worms, so that may be why lol. To get rid of them all you have to do is either not feed your fish for a week( I don't have fish in that tank). But the fish will eat them, so you don't have to starve them. Also to get rid of them all you have to do is do some gravel cleans. Meaning just clean the gravel. I can't because I have shrimplets in the gravel and I don't want to suck them up. You won't get the worms as long as you don't over feed your fish. Here's a quick video https://vimeo.com/172226143
Or the ones that are roaming about you can manually pick them out and cook them. Here is a recipe... Lol jk, but you can manually pick them out. Also, neon tetras will eat them! If you want to get some of them. They are friendly with shrimp and to answer your question tfreema, they are less common in planted aquaria, than unplanted (they compete with plants for resources)
And I meant Detritus Worms! I can't believe I made that mistake, hehe. It may be a planaria, but it is probably a detritus worm. Either way, neons will munch on them.
