RE: MTS die off
Some more information on my MTS problem:
Some of the MTS on the surface are still alive. I put them in some RO water
in the dark and they poked their little heads out. They have been on the
surface and not moving for 1-2 weeks. They definitely do not like something
in the water/substrate.
Never had MTS to start. Actually asked a pet store for some. The colony
has never really exploded.
I just measured my Potassium (K) concentration with the Aquarium Landscape
kit. With a x20 dilution I was still exceeding the higher standard,
implying > 40 ppm. Guess I'll stop dosing the K2SO4 for a while.
Shortly before the MTS problem arose, I bought some Tetra Nature's Delica
Whole Bloodworms (actually mosquito larvae). Fish like em. Lot's of other
stuff in the gel besides worms.
Tank temp is 78 F.
