Re: [APD] Waiter waiter there's a fly in my soup!
The diatomaceous powder is a problem for the gills so keep
an eye on them.
I'd turn off the filter and pur out the water and then let
powder inthe the poured water settle then net the fish out.
If you're lucky the powder will first come off is sheets
and you can pur the water without getting too much powder
sturred up -- but that would take a lot of luck.
Otoh, if there were any parasites in the gills, the
parasites are goners.
