    I don't even know if this post is in the right topic area, but here goes. I have refilled my 20 gallon hex since I've moved. When I emptied it I left the sandy substrate in it. In November I refilled it with water and put a power filter on it, and a heater (the temp is at 80). and an air stone. No plants, no fish. Prior to moving I had live plants and guppies. Some snails survived the move and have been multiplying, but this morning I noticed these tiny white creatures swimming around the tank and the glass. They are so tiny I can't make out their shape. I never noticed them when I did have fish in it. My question is: are they going to be detrimental to fish and plants? The snails are not bothered by them. Once again I don't currently have any fish or plants in the tank.

    Did you feed any live foods when the tank was running?

    If I had to guess from your link, I'd have to say they are probably closer to seed shrimp, but I'm not sure of it. They are smaller than the baby snails. They do get around quite easily.

    Yes that is a good link Jeff, I'm going to bookmark that one.

    Plaraia can look a little different than that one pic in the link. Looking at a few pics can help with a ID. They can look like the pic in your link, to the pic I incerted below, and almost everythign inbetween

    They are not long, they are more round like a flea. They look like white dots swimming around.
