I think my fiddler crab had babies!
I have a male and female fiddler crab pair that I think mated and produced offspring. These are in a 10 gallon specialty ramshorn and mystery snail breeding tank. About a week ago I noticed little 'squiggles' floating in the water and some actually worming their way on the glass. Today I put in some homemade snail food cubes and all heck happened. I started to see little aphid looking things coming up out of the gravel. They are teeny-tiny and move and look like an underwater spider mite. I know everyone says that fiddlers don't breed in regular tanks, but what else could these be?! I have noticed the squiggles before with another set of crabs and I'm assuming they ended up in the filter. I have NOT seen these little spidery critters. I can take a picture of the squiggles if that helps, but I don't know if I can focus good enough to get the mites. Any help will be appreciated, thank you!
