Hydra like things...
Anyone have experience with some hydra like organisms. I have found
some in my tank after adding some new plants (un-diped) and they have
appeared to increased in number.
They are light yellow/green in color. They seem to grow on a shared
stalk like some marine polyps, and one little guy is at each node. Size
is about <1/4" tall. The shared stalk is about the size of a human hair
(though a little smaller). I can definitely see their little arms when
they are in the water. I've yanked them out, but saved them (as I'm not
quite sure if I want them or not).
Any ideas about how they would affect fish? Any idea of a name for
them? Any other info would be appreciated.
