So, I've been battling flatworms for what seems like forever. I've been keeping them at bay, but have been doing a lot of work on the house during the spring and haven't been siphoning out as often as usual.
I also have seahorses so I need to have low flow and feed often. The only fish I have in there right now are the two seahorses and a mandarin eating frozen mysis daily - and a cleaner shrimp. I have an empty 20 gallon tank that I may move everyone to temporarily so that I can go buy, well "rent", a six-line wrasse to help eat the flatworms. I HAVE to get rid of these things once and for all, so i was planning on leaving the wrasse in the tank for a few weeks as i continue to siphon out flatworms, then nuke the tank with fw
exit and move everyone back.
My question is - I know every fish is it's own fish, but are six lines pretty proven as far as eating flatworms? Are two six lines compatible? I've got a 110g so I know I have the room. Would two weeks be enough time for them to at least make a dent before the fw
nuke? I do plan on returning the fish to the store or selling them to someone in my local club when they're done.
Thanks. And just as an fyi - I have posted questions about fw
in the past and have done a lot of research on them so i know about light, siphoning, overfeeding, flow, etc. I'm more curious about the wrasse information.
