What are these things?
I have two 35 gallon plastic tubs of daphnia and mosquito larva, with an
occasional bloodworm, outside, and two similar tubs inside. The indoor tubs
produce mainly daphnia with a few mosquito larva, plus the subject of this
question - some 1/4 to 1/2 inch black wormlike things that congregated at the
top, like mosquito larva. I assumed that they were just a different kind.
Then tonight, while cleaning the soil from a feeding of white worms, I found
I had many of the same things in there! There are some small flies in the
worm cultures; could the black things be the larva of them? If so, what are
they doing in the daphnia culture?
Sorry for he length of this. Thanks for your help.
