    Default white mites

    today after turning on the lights to my tank i was looking around and noticed a bunch of these little white mite looking things all over the glass. what are they, and should i be worried about them?

    Could be pods which are good. Or could be flat worms which are bad. "mites" would make me think pods though. Can you get a picture?
    ...I think my fish just farted.

    Hi,
    If they are like what I saw/see on my glass they are way too small to get a picture of them.
    If you go through a whole day without learning something new, you wasted it.

    Sounds like pods dude, thats a good thing. Shows that your tank is doing good and maturing. Your fish will be stoked too...I hear from my clown fish that those pods are GOOD eatin'!

    Agreed nice pics! And yes your mites are in fact pods...tastey treats for many fish and other critters.

    Shows your tank is beginning to mature...
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
