    Default What are those white bug like things in my shrimp tank?

    Hi guys,

    I need some help to get rid of white bug like things in my shrimp tank.

    About 2 month ago, I started to have planaria in my shrimp tanks. There were 2 different types of them. One is the flatworm, another is just like the white bugs in the picture.

    I dosed Panacur C (Fenbendazole), and looks like I killed the flatworm because they disappeared, but the white bugs are still there and the numbers are growing quickly. I don't know what is this. Are they harmful to the shrimps? How can I control the numbers?

    Thanks

    Pic is not clear enough, my guess would be seed shrimp, harmless.

    Are they stuck on the glass? Could also be freshwater limpets.
