I am running into a problem with the GW...tank is pretty hazy...not sure if its the food or what. The fish eat some but ignore the rest on the top....using Hikari flakes, Tetra Flakes, and Hikari mini pellets. Feed in the am and pm....reduced to just once feeding per day of a little pinch.
On another subject, I ordered a HOT MAGNUM 250 that I use to polish the earth and got it from Dr Fosters and Smith cuz I wanted it fast. I havent used it in about 5 days.
I charge it with DE from the local pool store...big box for 7 bucks!
Ill search for my post and put a link to this here shortly if I can dig it out...shows how I run it.
I would LOVE to get the tank under control....hate having to run the DE filter every now and then....would just like to have clear water.
