Cherry Shrimp Sludge Buildup


Hey guys I need help. I know the sludge detritus is a flow issue and filtration but how can I get this in a cherry shrimp tank without chopping them to bits. And they like slow water? Help!

Do regular filter cleanings and siphon sludge with a tiny airline hose?

That's what I do but every week I'm taking 5 gallons worth of water (its only a 10 gal tank) and by next week its back.

You can use what AVN suggested. I use plastic window screening/mesh.

Ah, my post was deleted. I don't think you're allowed to link to others.

Anyways, check out H4n, he makes custom sized filter guards.
