i have an 80 gal
aquarium with various fish and snails. I noticed on my mystery snail today when she was laying eggs that there were some bugs crawling on her.
i never noticed these bugs before.
she was above the water when I seen dozens crawling on her and I also seen these bugs crawling on my duckweed and the side of the tank. they jumped when I poked them. (eeeak) I didn't notice any of them under the water but I haven't had time to check (its late).
here is a link of a youtube video of the bugs in a some what close up
they didn't quite look like mites or springtails. not sure what they are. they look like they have full bodies and antennas, kinda like a tick meets an ant. except they are too small for me to be certain.
can any one help identify these?
(ive never been so itchy since I have now seen these bugs)
