Woodshrimps and Diatom filter
A couple of Cadinal Neons have spots on them, and I have also quaranrtined all of my ordinary neons since I think they have NTD. So I fired up the diatom filter yesterday, to filter out the spores of NTD, and deal with the white spots. I have 4 Singapore Woodshrimps, and they always hang out near the filter outlet (I guess all of them do), but after started the diatom filter for a day, three of them disappeared from where they always are and I couldn't find them at all; its a 6 ft heavily planted, so its not always easy to find anything if it prefer to hide. This's never happened before, and I just wonder, if the diatom filter would filter out all of their food supply.
Any experience or suggestions would be much appreciated.
