I have a FOWLR
tank which have cycled about 3 weeks. I then bought my first fish yesterday and everything seems ok until today. Today I find lots of tiny .5mm like lices on the glass and in the water. They have tiny little legs and a tail which to me is like some kind of pest. I have not notice any effect on the new fish.
But as a precaution I spoke to the LFS
and I was told the pest is from the LR
and I should not worry about it. I was told there are cleaner fishes which can clear them without using medication. I guess I am not sure whether I really trust what my LFS
tells me and is hoping someone in the forum can tell me:
i) What are these white lices?
ii) Where they are from?
iii) Are they harmful to my fish?
iv) How can I get rid of them?
The problem is that I have cycled my tank with LR
without light for about 3 weeks and I have not seen them at all until now.
