Re: Substrate bacteria

Surely to avoid any build up of substrate bacteria is by carrying out
regular gravel cleaning. Yes it is much colder over here (Scotland) and all
tanks have heaters unless the fish house is space heated, even then many
tanks have individual heaters. Water current is essential to circulate the
heat within the tank. When a spawn hatches the wrigglers are moved and
cleaned by the mother several times each day before they are free swimming.
Some catfish owners wonder why the barbels of their corydoras have
disappeared, simple answer - bacteria in the substrate - solution, regular
gravel cleaning.
