Hi everyone

I have very small white little organisms over my glass can't take a pic as they are so small.

Does anyone know what they are ?

I should imagine they are pods :)

They'll be copepods or rotifers or other general microfauna. It's good to have a natural population of zooplankton.  :glad:

Agree - it's normal to get a population explosion like this when setting up a new tank.  8D
