    Cleaning U.Gibba container

    Hi everyone



    Just got my 1st urtic about a week back from edward from a trade(thanks) Since then the water level has drop quite a lot and its just sitting there probally just 2 cm or less of water and about an inch of peat thingy that i have no idea what is it at the bottom..So they say i have to clean there container..so how do i do that?

    The gibba is already attached to the pot...so do i have to like take the peat out together with the gibba all out clean the container throughly or do i just replenish the water after it drops to just wet peat and clean just a little at the sides?Anyone can share how you do it?

    Hi Capensis

    So far i only can get ictures in here through my sister (longstory) sooo i can't.....My point here is how do i actually clean a gibba container? My gibba's condition now is in about 1-2cm of water and also an inch of peat thingy at the bottom so how should i clean it to prevent algae growth..

    Oh, algae. I don't think you can prevent algae, but either way, it won't harm the U. gibba.

    Hi Cap

    I thought algae can be lethal to aquatic species of urtics? Anyways there is also something floating on the surface of the water its like a layer of greenish stuff? Like the picture when they show the pic of urtic giba close up in Savage Garden..I hope thats not dangerous too..So you mean i don't really have to clean the container?

    Gibba would grow in rather stagnant conditions so algae would not bother them. Leave the algae, it will feed the animals that the gibba feeds off of.
