    Anyone know what these are?

    I'm wondering if they are a threat to breeding white cloud minnows.

    These are in one of your tanks??

    Physical removal is the only method I know of.

    Well in a pond setting you are kinda at natures mercy I'm sure there will still be plenty of white clouds that make it though :)

    What I did was grow the minnows out as large as possible indoors, then hope for the best.

    Tx madagascariensis, the minnows breed in the pond like crazy, more than the tanks, I think he was hoping to protect the fry as much as possible. Like AmazonJoe said, I'm sure enough fry will make it. He'll remove the larvae manually for now as he sees them. They were there last year, but not to the same extent as this year.
