Hi all,
Noticed some tiny (just specs to the eye) in my shrimp tank. Are these good / bad / indifferent?
They look like they are "scuds", in this case baby Crangonyx, they are good thing.

I've sent moss to various people and subsequently they've found either Crangonyx or Asellus in the tank, so if you've had any new moss recently that might be a source.

cheers Darrel

I've got thousands in my cherry tank - they tend to sit around on the glass eating algae all day.

Sometimes they will pester the shrimp, one had one on its nose the other day and the shrimp was trying to wipe it off. He got it eventually and it swam off.
