I take out 75% every 5 days.....

I Had some problems with little snake Like worms in substrate.... i found the wey and they Are gone if i can help someone.

I did this to GET rid of worms in substrate:

1. I took and clean ALL decoration and put back only one woodlike decoration to minimaze polition in thank.

2. Took ALL gravel and clean it.

3. Filter as you can see in video Are aimed forward to the glass So that ALL little stuff is picked from bottom to water colum and than sucked with filter intakes.

4. I add 1 tablespoon per 5 galons salt when doing waterchange.

...... that is the cure, there Are no more worms. Good waterflow and salt with little decoration for cleaner tank...

;)

Yes thats how its done. The worms were likely from overfeeding the Oscar. I would recommend to stop salting the tank. It does have specific uses, but in a fully cycled tank with good maintenance and a healthy fish, there is no need and is actually putting a strain on the fish. Salt should not be a regular component of a freshwater cichlid tank. Bruno looks good!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Zaric salt doesn't get out when you take the water out só whenever you add salt you are increasing salt levels in the tank. I would stop adding salt now.
