Re: Vinegar Eels
First use a wide mouth gallon glass container. Take a strip of a green (or
what ever color you like) scrubby pad. I use blue. Fill the container with
your vinegar and apples slices. Next punch a small hole in the scrubby pad
and place a string through it. Submerge the scrubby into the vinegar. When
clouds of vinegar eels appear this means they are all over the place
including the scrubby.
Now to harvest is the easiest part of all. Take out the scrubby by grabbing
the string that you left hanging over the side. Get a container and fill it
with either tank water or dechlorinated tap water and place the scrubby into
the water (this is done after you let most of the vinegar drip from the
scrubby) and shake vigorously. You will notice millions of eels are now in
water with the least amount of vinegar. You can then pipette them into your
fry tanks. I use a bird feeding suringe. I find them to work wonders in many
areas. By using this method you will eliminate the left over debris from the
scrubby. It will settle to the bottom of the container. I always syphon from
the top and I usually through away the small amount that is left when I am
done. This usually contains very little vinegar eels and most of the debris
from the scrubby.
Good luck and raise those fry.
