I'm using something similar - I think mine's 50mesh... You have to make a point of disturbing it (stirring) once in a while to prevent any anaerobic bacteria pockets from forming.

Malthusian....had to look that one up....works though.

I guess I could keep them in check with a few Loaches.....however, I also wanted to get some shrimp, so they would probably go too!
