I currently have no fish in my tank and ive got these white things on my glass!!!!
Not a good enough picture to indentify them. How do they/do they move? Are they in the water column or only on the glass? Worm like or round?
Agreed with @MikeRad89, I can't tell because the picture is somewhat blurry. Do you have another picture?
They're just on the glass, they're worm like with 4 antenna type things on the end away from the glass.
Do you have a clearer picture of these "organisms"
They're darker looking today.
you've got hydra! Hydra (genus) - Wikipedia pretty harmless except to fry and baby brine shrimp! They can be eradicated with spot injection of hydrogen peroxide or just feed less
Agreed, you have hydra. I find them very unique because they have a distinct regeneration ability. All you need to do is do a water change or feed less to get rid of them
Fenbendazole kills Hydra pretty quick. I got fishbendazole from Dr's. Foster and Smith, or there's a dog dewormers you can get. I don't remember the name.
They are like mini sea anemones, having stinging tentacles, a central mouth and gut and a base that sticks them temporarily and can be unstuck. They reproduce by budding a baby off the side of the adult. The only time they have been a problem for me was when I was breeding daphnia in my water butt outside. I cleaned the water butt thouroughly and haven't seen them since. As said they would be a problem in the fry tank.
