Have the angels been fighting? They look near adult size. They also appear to be veils which are darned near irresistible to fin nippers of any sort (even other angels).

Do you have a q/t that...

Can't leave the canister running if you use a surface extractor intake - at least I can't as I do too large a w/c. I try to fill it slowly. I've learned not to enlist offspring assistance in...

BTW, the "official" name is "worm feeder". Some of them have the cone strainer separate from the floating ring, so you can corral the floating food if you wish. Why you'd do that, I have no idea.
