re: Parasites

I have a 10g tank which I'm breeding some bettas in
and I've noticed stuck to the glass there's some very tiny
dots that are moving on the glass (the fry were eating them).
I'm not too sure how big 1/64th of an inch is, but my "dots"
are about .5 - 1mm in length. They look more like bits of
dust. Sort of like when you take your glasses off (if you
wear glasses) and you have to clean them because of the
specs of dust on it. Except the only difference is these
specs are definately moving. I don't know if this is the same
thing you have in your tank.

The only way I can see these parasites is if I take my
glasses off (gotta get those bi-focals soon eeek). I have not
got this on my other 2 tanks tho', only my fry tank (who are
now about 10 days old), so the tank was only set up about
2 1/2 weeks ago, if that means anything.
