laugh.gif siphon the bugs that I can see into a container.. then pour the water though the white filter gauze. luckily the gauze actually manage to trap these bugs. then pour it back into the tank. Very time consuming but managed to reduce quite a lot..till the next day when they reproduce again.. and the cycle continues mad.gif

actually those seed shrimp they help in cleaning up diatoms and unfinished food in your tank,
the only bad thing about them is the ugly look.

Yea they are pretty effective, all the alage near my substrate cleared by them, even now I don't have to scrub my tank walls for a few weeks already still clear thanks to them i guess, clean. But too many of these seed shrimps really look ugly doh.gif

I restarted but for the wrong reason.... my tank got WMD attacked when office was spraying disinfectant.

End up killing every non-plant living organism in the tank.

Now I turn on the tank fan before leaving the office.... put on my auto top-off contraption and that's it.

Weather getting colder here now so I think this weekend no need to turn on liao.

Do you guys vacuum your gravel/substrate or just leave the shrimp poo to sink and decompose?

I don't vacuum the soil coz if I do the soil gets vacuumed too... tongue.gif

Just let nature takes it's course... since shrimp bioloads are small... the poop even smaller. Still need it to generate BB biggrin.gif

Btw, did you have any shrimp casualty today as you think you would? Hope not. wink.gif

Thanks. Must not be too paranoid then.

So far so good for the tank newbies... all accounted for + 1 successful molt.
