Re: Blue Gularis removal
Try tilting the tank to move the peat and water to one end and slowly bring
the tank back to horizontal. Then use lighting from the "peat free" end to
attract newly hatched brine shirmp to that end away from the peat. Any
uneaten food(BBS) will thus be easy to remove. This will keep the peat from
getting foul and you can maintain the fry in the same place till they are
plenty big enough to net.
