Pick them out , one, at a time. Kill, kill, kill. It may take weeks. But you will get them all if you try hard enough. I have done this in several tanks.

I would stay with Ehiem. They have the best filtration. The flow from Fluval is overrated . The tubing is terrible. HOB filters will take away your CO2. They are good mechanical filters though. They...

Its been about 2 weeks. I have done nothing, but the filter is now silent like I expect from Ehiems. The small 2213 is making less noise sitting next to my 2215. I am happy again.
So for all the...
