The tanks also are used for blue-eyes, nanos, dwarf varieties that do not feed off of the fry and young as a rule. The barley is used to reduce fil. algae and water clarity but does it kill the benificial algae the the shrimp grase on?
Also have a variety of nerites and large snails.
Any advice is welcome. I use it in my pond and works there very well but it only holds koi.
I've never used it before.
If you start your own thread, im sure you would get better advice though ^^
