Problems in the aquarium

A new pest in the freshwater aquarium, hydras ... the only consolation is that the hydra live in good quality water and clean, we should be proud of our aquarium.

The freshwater hydra is in streams and ponds, from late spring to early fall. Live aquatic plants anchored as lentils, elodeas, ceratophillium ...

We can distinguish three types of freshwater hydras, the brown, the gray and green, these latter owe their color name and unicellular green algae found inside their tissues, that live there.

It is very easy to see the hydra in the aquarium will see them anchored to the crystals, the truth is that there are beings who give trouble to the eye, after all in the aquarium's life and they are living beings, we have that ashamed of them, I do not care to have them. In short, with a small magnifying glass can observe in detail, a small increase will be more than enough for your observation.

The hydras have stinging cells on their tentacles, later explain how to use them for nourishment.

The hydras move giving volveretas, as saltinbanquis, is curious truth, bends and Nephew elos catch tentacles or on the basis to move, of course, is logical if not previously in the crystal pegaditas, there have now come to somehow.

As we said before, the hydra feeds on small prey, which are captured with its tentacles, which are fitted with "nematocysts" ... stinging cells. Thanks to them the prey is paralyzed and carry with the tentacles into the digestive cavity .... is the process that we will not see in detail and the undigested remains as shells are thrown back by the mouth.

A curious fact is that the hydra has self-healing, if we cut the hydra three then, in a short space of time we will have three hydras. We're going to have great, so depending on the type of cut would take to regenerate from 2-10 days.

The fresh water hydras reproduce, as explained above and also by sexual reproduction by budding, hydras have males and females.

The taxonomic classification of our hydro is Metazoan, because it has a large number of cells, coelenterates, by its cavity and intestine as could be Medusa, the obelia ...

In short, we know that this animal so curious in an aquarium would cause some kinks to the offspring of our shrimp and our fish ...
