Thank you very much for the inputs. My scooter who I had for 2 years was always fat and happy. Everytime I would clean out the socks I would find 5-10 pods
in each. When the lights are off I can use a strong flashlight and see a crap ton of pods
throughout the tank.
Here is what I kept from the original post. . . I have a massive diatom bloom that I cant get rid of. (i think it is diatoms) it is reddish brown in color and covers the entire sand bed. I do a 20 gallon water change every week. (200 gallon tank). I didn't think diatoms would kill my fish, but thats what it looks like.
Does anyone know a aquarium enthusiast in Florida who wants to make some extra money? I am to the point that I need to bring someone over and look and assist me.
