filter question
« on: July 27, 2015, 06:24:55 pm »
Hi all ,


Just changed the fine polishing pads in my external filter after a recent gravel change (water still a little cloudy)and noticed some tiny black wriggly crawly things in the bottom of the canister . Could anyone advise me as to what these could be ? Slightly worried as im new to all this .

If it helps the tank is a fluval venezia 350 corner tank with a fluval 405 external filter .


Thank you in advance .

    In my experience fish love to eat tiny wriggly crawly things!
    I wouldn't worry too much about them - they won't do any harm in the filter and any that get into the tank will be free food.
