If it comes off that easily, then I would suggest getting a small diameter hose and syphoning it instead. That way you are removing it as a whole instead of in parts and will greatly decrease the chances of spreading it futher...

mabey a dumb question but what are bi-valves?
A bi-valve is a mollusk that has two distinct shells like clams, mussels and oysters. A uni-valve would be an animal that has one shell like snails.

Cheers
Steve

For the time being, I think you will be fine without the foods as your nutrient level is quite possibley on the higher side. As you move through the process, a good quality target fed food would be best. Used very sparingly and once a week or less would help the mussel. I do not think you will need to worry about it for a few weeks though. You will need to play it by ear so to speak.

Cheers
Steve
