Does anyone know how to clean/WC a fry tank? I see food on the bottom getting fuzz on it.

update:

due to my inexperience, the fries did not make it. Its due to the water quality on the food i was feeding. I did not grind up the veggie krills - it cloud the water and the uneaten food got moldy fairly quickly. i'll clean out the tank and start again - seems like the parents are at it - so hopefully this time i'll get something out of them.

that's where it failed on my end - the lack of knowledge with taking care of fries..............is minimal

but good to know Draco .. thank you for your insight - it's running on two sponge filters.
