    Picture Of Creatures In My Tank

    Mmm someone said it could possibly that when I caught one of these things a few weeks ago. Goodness knows how they are getting in there. I've not seen any damselfly or dragonflies any where around here. What happens when they grow? Do they suddenly fly out of the tank???? :crazy:

    Help Creatures In My Tank Again!

    Thanks for replying. I've just googled planaria and nematodes. Forgive me for being stupid but are they the same type of thing? I guess I've been overfeeding according to the site I've just read. I'll cut down on that immediately and see if they disappear. Any ideas on the other thing I...

    Weird Little Creature

    Thanks for quick replies people! The water isn't stagnant and its moving on the surface but having just googled dragonfly larvea I'm guessing its something like that that has somehow managed to get under my lid. It looks similar to the pictures I've just seen of the dragonfly larvea so I'm...

    Weird Little Creature

    Hi I was changing the water in my newly set up shrimp tank, when I pulled the jug out I saw something swimming and immediately thought I'd caught a little shrimp! However when I looked closely I saw this tiny thing that I can only discribe as being like a tiny baby hammerhead shark! Obviously...

    Hi Everyone. I've set up a little tank just for shrimps. The only trouble is that today I asked in my lfs and they said that they can't get any because they're getting hard to find! Does anyone know a good place on-line to buy small freshwater shrimps please? Thanks

    Need A Little Advice Please!

    Another good idea. Thats the way I use to have an undergravel filter many years ago. I didn't realise that bettas didn't like a current! Good job you told me that, I wouldn't like to stress him out as soon as I buy him! Guess its back to the pet shop for me tomorrow! :rolleyes:

    Need A Little Advice Please!

    Mmm, never thought of that! Maybe it would look better that way. At the moment its being hidden behind some plants I've put in. I'll give it a few days and decide which way is better. I always have a mess about at first rearrangeing things! Must admit I'm very impressed with the silence of...

    The funniest thing you've ever seen your fish do

    The funniest thing I ever saw was in my sons shrimp tank. He threw in a few peas and one of the shrimps grabbed one and tried to climb the ornament he has in there. Its about 12" high and this shrimp was trying his best to climb this thing backwards with a huge pea in his claws. We must have...
