LOL ... no idea what it is, but it looks COOL! Looks like some tiny-bitty shrimp, or something of the sort! Hmm, did it come from one of your tanks? Or was it just there in the sink? Does it move/swim fast? Would it be possible for you to take it out into some larger container and take its picture again (without the glass distorting the view)?
Do you have any adult shrimps in your tank? Maybe they had babies?
Whatever it is, feed it so it doesn't die. If you have some kind of mesh, keep it in your tank in the mesh. It probably needs the same water quality as fish do.
I think it's someone's larva too. No idea where it came from,though.
Dino, I have lost a few small fish in the past few weeks, which puzzled me. Could that thing have been the culprit? Or it and its five million brothers and sisters? But then again, the fish disappeared around the time that I put in a couple of powerheads, so I really don't know. I think an overhaul may be in order.
It's still in the test tube with a tiny flake of food. I taped it inside the tank so the water could be kept warm enough. I can't find another clear container for it that isn't rounded. I really, really don't want to touch it; it moves strangely! :-\ I had a hard enough time getting it out of the sink and into that test tube. It was wiggling and things...bleh, but I'll try to get better pictures.
That is weird. As it's in a test tube and obviously transportable - would it be possible to take it to your LFS for any clues? If they don't know I'd be taking the Men in Black statement a little more seriously!!!
It wasn't a mosquito larva; it didn't look at all like those pictures or the ones I've seen. I guess we'll never know because I poured it down the sink drain.
Yeah, I know I'll have to upgrade for all of them. I'm prepared for it. I've had the BGK for a year now, I'm watching its growth. We're up to about twenty centimeters. I'm excited for the move. That means I can buy more fish.
