Yeah. Ive heard that it is difficult to use a slurp gun. I use nets to catch them. I made a homemade net using a clear sleeping bag cover and a mesh net and stitched them together. It works PERFECT!!!.
since you live in hawaii i would assume that doing water change would be a lot easier with fresh sea water
I'm converting my tank into NSW
. But for now. I'm treating my fish in separate buckets and doing a hypo on my tank to rid the ick. In maybe a week or two I will be able to stabalize my tank with NSW
. I get my water from the Waikiki Aquarium. Should check out their pictures online and see how they farm corals and other stuff. Their water is pumped straight from the ocean and filtered. I wouldnt take unfiltered water straight from the ocean though.
