I have these tiny white bugs in my shrimp only tanks. They swim with very fast jump like motions. I can't get a good picture of one, they're so small. I put a small guppy juvenile in to eat them and it seems to control the bugs. Has anyone had these little bugs and can I get rid of them without fish to eat them. I can use chemicals but I don't want to kill the shrimps.

Hello Bill.

They are copepods (signs of a healthy tank). You could get some micro-rasboras (Boraras genus) or some Dario Dario to eat them, or just leave them be. As long as hydra or planaria aren't mixed in there too, your good to go!

Respectfully,

Stuart
