That was all you could do. I'm pretty sure that most of us have been there at some point.So where does that leave me. Im telling myself that I have done what I would have done if the water and filter was indeed bad. I changed a ton of water. I have another ton preheating in my 220 liter barrel for another big change tomorrow. The prefilter strainer has been replaced with a coarse sponge. I added an airstone right next to the intake to make sure the water there is circulated. While I had the filter open I threw out the finest sponge layer entirely, and spread the medium sponge out into two baskets to help flow. Theres Seachem Prime in the tank.
They should get about 20-25 cm long. They will definitely not eat tetras, and I havent seen them show any interest in my dwarf shrimp. They are not predatory in behavior but more like a grazer that eats only tiny crustaceans and worms in the sand. They are very peaceful so I would not house them with anything aggressive or that could pick on them.Any idea what size these get to and if they will eat small tetras etc?
Spray bar is back, my package with the JBL in/out set arrived. I might write some more on this kit later as im not super impressed with it.
