Cleaning debris from the sand at the bottom.
Ever since we got our Dog Face Puffer and Bicolor Angel we have been putting frozen silverside fish (thawed out of course), mysis congelee, and krill into the tank.
It seems little of it gets eaten, and the bottom of the tank is starting to look very littered. We had our water tested recently and our ammonia levels went way up- I'm not sure if it is on account of adding the two large fish or because of the waste accumulating at the bottom.
It is extremely difficulty to pick up the uneaten pieces of food with a net from the sand at the bottom of the tank.
Is there some kind of a scavenger fish that will eat uneaten food from the bottom of the tank so that the tank does not become a graveyard of decomposing, uneaten food? Or is there another solution to this problem?
