Florida ricordea pests

Recommended Posts

Jacob319

So I keep almost all my mushrooms in my sandbed and before I just had two down there one was on a frag a little bit above the sand bed and the other I buried the disc down to try and hide it the one where I buried disc was eaten starting with the mouth of the ricordea but the other wasnt affected I waited about a month and figured it was a fluke so I bought a rock of ricordeas and now I'm noticing the same thing happening to them. And I've never seen something act so quickly to eat them in that way but at night I made a red light filter and scoured it for hours and saw no pests in the tank does anyone know what could be causing this???

 

And I'm almost positive it's a pest cause I'll wake up and look into my tank and they'll have their mouths missing but my ricordea that survived the last time hasn't been touched.

If you didn't dip it before you put it in the tank, it might not be a bad idea to take it out and dip it now.  That's what I would do, it you think it is a pest.

I did that and the only thing that died was a copepod

But I did move them into some rock higher in the water colum to see if anything changes

Some kinda killer worm? I’m guessing a worm
