Question Spider web?

So......... was feeding the fish and noticed a spider web/cob web looking thing going from one water lettuce root to another..... it looks like some one hasn't dusted in there in a while..... any one know what this could be?

Re: Spider web?

I have no idea what it could have been but I had a similar experience inside my divided 10g bettaautolinker.com autolinking image tank. I had a cobweb inside my tank, up in the corner. It was the creepiet thing.

Anyone else ever had this happen? I think Holly12 and I would like to know. Very strange thing to have happen.

Re: Spider web?

Yea, and not being able to find the little guy who made the web is even more bizarre.

Re: Spider web?

Ive had spiders make webs in my tanks.Think about it.freshautolinker.com autolinking image water right there,and any tiny flies or what have you will go there too.Plus the warmth of the light.Yeah If I were a spider I would move there.

Re: Spider web?

They make webs under the water? I've been in a lake and seen spiders on logs under the water, but didn't think they would build a web there! (I haven't seen one in there yet, so maybe the chilli rasboras ate it?)

I have serious spider issues, so if it was a spider, I hope the fish ate it!

Re: Spider web?

The thought of spiders making webs and living under water disturbs me! (Even more that the crazily big mouths on those macros!) Lol!

Re: Spider web?

Sounds to me like the spiderweb thing might be hydra. Just a guess though. I'd like to see it though, sounds neat.


29g Tall FW: Many Swordtails: 1 lemon, 6-8 neon/pineapple, 1 Gold Tuxedo, ? fry; 1 Clown Pleco; 3 Otocinclus Cats, and MTS.
Planted: Amazon Swords.

Re: Spider web?

Fearmancer: I did have Hydra but the Chillies ate them all. (Literally thousands of hydra!!) Chillies did a great clean up job! Haven't seen any Hydra since. (Do Hydra build webs?)

Maj: Are those YOUR fish?! (It's like silent screaming!) Lol. You should put the 3 Tenors on in the back ground and sync it with the mouth opening!
