Twice a day I feed my fish and on each occaision, I'm presented with the above. On the water surface are the above "creatures". They look like eggs, but are in fact things that move about. Each time I grab my net, scoop them all off and 12 hours later when I return to feed, they are back.

Any ideas on what they are and an eradication soultion? I have a video taken of them moving about if that helps.

Thanks!

Nope - I just keep scopoping them off the surface. I think I've made headway as there's hardly any left to scoop each day.

They only appear on the surface - there are no signs of any related activity IN the water, and my fish and shrimp are completely unaffected..

Seed shrimp or limpets?

That looks like them (seed shrimp)!! I have no idea how they were introduced. The tank has been going for 10 years and I haven't introduced any new plants or fish recently.

Having done a quick google, it looks like they are here to stay... :-(
