Well I read if its hyrda scapin it off would be a way it multiplies... when I do my water change Tues. I'll try and scrape and remove. also can anyone recommend some fine filter floss I can add to my aqua clear because I think the particles are to small for the sponge pad to pick up.

Your petsotore of choice should have FINE filter pads that fit your filter. Otherwise just buy a filter pads that's slightly larger then yours and cut to size yourself.

i had a big hydra problem when i was over feeding i think they came in on the brine shrimp. once i stopped using brine shrimp, they disappeared. don't do anything drastic, it's just a symptom of another problem and will go away on its own once you alleviate the problem. maybe try scraping them off the glass with your syphon during your wc as a preliminary way to reduce them. they are not harmful per se but yes unsightly and pesky.

FRYUP exactly what your describing... what do you mean by gravel vac? When I change my water every week I DON'T vacumm the gravel I kinda just move the syphon around the water. Should I be atually vacumming the gravel itself. I havn't been doing this because I ve read it damages bacteria.

ok so I went ahead and scraped it off. It came off very easily and almost string like. It's all floating around I guess my filter will take care of it now.

I'd vac cum the greater parts of your gravel there and do a lil larger w/c for the moment and lessen the food (maybe even only feed every 2nd day won't harm the fish at all).
