Re: Green water, mosquitos, daphnia update



David,
In the book, The Confederate General from Big Sur, by Richard Brautigan,
this man had a similar problem with bullfrog's keeping him awake. To make it
short, he got some baby alligator's from the LFS, they ate the frog's, and
all was peacefully quite,  until the gator's grew up, of coarse! Did you
know that alligator's crook also? Any way, you think you got croaker
problem's, read the book ;  )
