vinegar eels, surface scum
I just got my very first vinegar eel culture about 10 days ago. It is in a 2 qt jar, not filled to the top so it has max surface area. The medium is 1/2 apple cider vinegar, 1/2 dechlorinated water, and about 4 to 6 ounces of organic apple juice. (one of the web sites I visited said that using juice was just as good as as apple pieces but left much less debris in the bottle.)
I just checked it everyday for the first 5 days and the little eels seemed fine. That grew tiring so I stopped checking. I looked again today and I see a surface scum on the liquid but what's worse, I far fewer eels.
What went wrong? What can I do to save this?
