does anyone else have intentional experience with this ?
-i had greenwater (intentionally, i wanted it in the tank - first part of many ideas to follow)
-the greenwater crashed (unintentional)
-i could not get greenwater started again (i would add additional cultured greenwater directly to the tank and it would die within a couple days - clear water again)
-i eventually gave up adding additional greenwater to the tank for a few months (2-3 months)
i added some greenwater to the tank again a few days ago, it died off too, but instead of clearing up within a few days it took it near a week this time.
i could try an 80% water change in the tank (near the entire thing) and likely only remove 80% of whatever it is that is killing the greenwater culture i add to the tank. to me this doesn't sound like a solution. only 80% of a solution, so keeping 20% of the problem
does anyone have any other ideas on what to do to solve the problem so i could have greenwater in the main tank again ?
there are all kinds of things i could have in a tank that had it's own greenwater culture
-daphnia (or other zooplankton)
without greenwater these are going to starve to death.
i know where to get freshwater sponges for our aquariums (canada & US both)
