Bugs on my floating plants?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I bought some frogbit the other week for my 4ft tank to help control algae, and over the past couple of days I've noticed an outburst of small bugs living all over the top of nearly every individual plant. You can see:

I don't know what they are, but I'd just like some advice on how to get rid of them. I've got quite a lot of plants floating on top so if there's something I can just dip them all in at once that wont harm the plants then that'd be great.

cheers

they are aphids. Do some research - but i think you can use white oil spray (as in take the plants out and put in a bucket, spray them, rinse the next day and return)

If you find something interesting please post up your findings.

Cheers, Jodi-Lea
