 I  have  these  tiny  rounded  fast  moving  creatures  on  my  planted  tank  probably  copepods  but  I  am  not  sure.  I  don't  want  to  start  everything  from  scratch  once  again   in  order  to  get  rid  of  the  copepods.  Though  they  are  not  annoying  the  fishes  too  much  I  want  to  eliminate  the  copepods  but  I  don't  know  how  to  do  it.
 
 The  tank  is  discus  only  planted  tank.  Please  suggest  me  a  good  soultion  to  get  rid  of  the  copepods.

 I  have  the  same  tiny  creatures  in  my  planted  tank.  Right  now  Im  feeding  my  fish  only  once  in  4  days  hoping  that  they  will  eat  them  up.  Cant  say  if  they  have  made  a  difference  so  far.

 Fish  will  not  eat  them.  Increase  your  water  changes.  These  guys  are  mostly  due  to  water  quality  issues-like  planaria.

 I  had  this  issue  in  my  CRS  tank  where  food  was  a  bit  in  excess  and  water  changes  minimal.
 
 I  got  the  food  bit  under  control  and  i  dont  see  a  lot  of  these  now,  but  as  Vignesh  pointd  out  water  quality  plays  an  important  role  too.

 Ram,  those  I  think  are  Isopods.  Not  a  good  thing  to  have-they  will  cling  on  to  fish/shrimps  and  are  parasites.  Try  to  net  them  out.  They  usually  come  as  hitchhikers  on  fish/inverts/plants  generally  from  the  wild.
 
 Did  you  introduce  anything  you  picked  up  from  the  wild?
 
 Just  to  be  sure  this  is  what  you  have(hopefully  not)  are  they  about  1cm  in  diameter?

 No  fish  will  eat  them.  They  will  be  there  and  once  water  conditions  are  back  in  shape  and  no  excess  food  is  present,  they  will  vanish.

 hi  vignesh
 
 I  really  doubt  whether  it  is  isopoda.
 They  are  very  small  about  less  than  0.5  mm  and  moves  very  fast.
 Luckily  they  are  now  in  an  unused  tank  and  no  feeding.That  is  the  doubt.
