it's a 28G nano cube...

after a 50% water change the copepods are a lot less now, but still visible. and i see some bigger ones crawling on the rocks, sand... not sure if they are the same thing.

Arent copepods to be desired? I wouldnt be doing PWCs to get rid of them. Fish will do that for you.

Yould be surprised how fast they go away with a sixline wrasse in the tank.

Good to know! Paying a visit to the LFS this weekend! I was just so worried because they look gross when there's a mass of them crawling on my tank.

My algae problem has been gone, do those things eat algae?
