Default Saw a Shrimplet

Woo hoo I saw a shrimplet in my shrimp/guppy/neon tank. it was on a seed pod for a plant I am trying to get to grow (but probably won't) the other night and then I hadn't seen it for a day or two. Well yesterday I was doing my weekly water change/snail vacuuming (I use the tank vac to suck up as many pond snails as I can.) and almost vacuumed the little guy up (saw him in the tube and released suction). This little guy is about 3 millimeters long.

Be real careful with the vacuuming. If you have one about 3mm long, you probally have many more that are smaller and hard to see.

I know what you are saying Dano. When I poured the used water out I poured it through a fine fish net as a precaution.

On another note I have been noticing the shrimp turning over the smaller pond snails and eating them, and I squish some of the medium sized pond snails and the guppies and guppy fry eat them.

I wish that I had a good steady supply of snails for my Loaches
