Its not a snail!

I wonder if it could be ghost shrimp fry=) There seems to be a lot of them. I hope they don't harm my tank.
Check out "seed shrimp"

I'm not sure that is it. =( They might be brine shrimp, but it's been at least 5 days since I put some in there. But they jump like fleas. Hmmm, if they survive, hopefully I can take a pic of them.

Two other critters come to mind:
Daphnia and Copepods
I doubt the brine shrimp would still be alive in FW after that many days.

★ They are tiny, like brine shrimp babies. I noticed it had a tail, and is oval shaped and white. But hops around so fast I have to stare at my tank to find them. They like hopping on my tank glass.

★I will google those. I thought all my brine shrimp would have died too, thats why I am hoping its not harmful for my fish.

If they're super small, they could be ich. It's hard to tell with out a picture.

To keep this thread on track I fed my tanks and my beat up yellow lab is doing better, but not 100% yet.

Did nothing except treat my planted tank to the third dose of erythromycin (trying to get rid of Cyanobacteria).

Nothing. Just enjoying watching my fry. They are curious little buggers.
