When it comes to excess fish waste I have to ask if you're feeding high quality food. Many of the foods today have fishmeal with copious amounts of grains as filler/binder. This filler/binder goes right through fish with little nutrient absorption. Check your label(s) and make sure the ingredients lists fish products 1st.
note: Way back when I switched to high quality foods, I noticed an amazing difference in the amount of fish waste - believe it or not!
Although I think MTS are extremely beneficial, and they will cleanup uneaten food, I'm uncertain about fish waste....perhaps.
BTW, in contrast to a previous post since MTS burrow in the substrate, they do aerate and deposit plant usable nutrients.
