For those with outdoor shrimp ponds/containers, lid ?
For those that have outdoor shrimp container ponds what sort of lids or netting do you use? I have a 16 gallon transparent blue tote I have about 50 RCS/PFRs in. The only problem is their color is somewhat fading due to lack of light (it's somewhat in the shade most of the day). The lid is the same transparent blue as the tote. So do you all use mosquito netting, window screen, lids, or nothing? It already has a few mosquito larvae in it despite have the lid fitted loosely to the top. I just want to avoid dragonflies and damselflies. No fish, pretty heavily planted and on the back porch. Thanks in advance!
