Interesting - can you take one of the larger ones and take a picture out of the water?Yes scraped some off and felt the under side was more snail like. It has a black foot. Not limpets , has an overall “shell” shape.
range in size from a few mm across where the largest one is the size of a quarter.
Was this reply meant for another thread? I see spirobid worms and some sort of transparent bivalve attached to the glass.These look like Ostracods which are flea like often referred to as grass shrimp and are scavengers eating algae
Can use clearer pics to fully confirm
Out of curiosity here, OP, how long have you had these guys, and are you feeding/dosing anything that you think may be sustaining them (like phyto)?Thanks!! Maybe I’ll make necklaces with the left overs..
Common bivalve that can have some awesome and unique shell colors!
Lol at jingle shells.. Thought ReeferReboot was trolling me until I looked it up hahaha. Had these guys for years... I feed quite heavy and I used to dose Phyto back then for my pods. Started seeing a few in the sump walls and thought it was some kind of bivalve / filter feeder so I didn't think much of it.Out of curiosity here, OP, how long have you had these guys, and are you feeding/dosing anything that you think may be sustaining them (like phyto)?
