These are very typical symptoms of Velvet. I would like to have a
microscope at your side Steve.
RO Water or tap water, doesn't really matter. Expect the worse -
Velvet cysts in the dirt. If your hatch solution works don't change
it but to add salt, lots of it. At least a tablespoon per gallon two
would not be too much..
Split your next bag and add part of it to a salt solution,
keeps the BBS alive longer also. Make up enough to change the water
every day - all of it. Keep the water the same but fresh and salty.
Those of us who have microscopes have the same information. Work with
the rest of the dirt any way you like but at least try what Wright
and I offered.
