any ideas on how to get rid of it, other than: w/c, emerald crabs, sally light foot crabs? also i have a uv sterilizer that i guess i need to slow the flow down on, any idea on how often the bulb needs to be cleaned ?
also, use RO/DI water. It is phosphate free. Plus, it's mineral free so you won't have mineral deposits at the water line and all over your equipment. RO/DI units are cheap, 100 bucks on ebay. They are awesome. I have one i got off ebay last august and it works like a champ...well made too.
