    Unhappy

    Does anyone know what aquatic utrics can and can't process? I'm wondering, if I put it into a tank with fish, will it eat any of the waste matter? I figure it may eat leftover food if it floats by. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Saying that the fish's water conditions are favorable, it should be fine, but if the fish is herbavorious...*cough* Oh, yeah, the fish food should be just fine.

    I'm not sure if fish food would be able to trigger the utric's trapping mechanism.

    dodecatheon,
    I think he's saying that the fish would consider the Utrics as food. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Indirectly, as the waste matter and fish food is consumed by microorganisms they will inturn become food for the Utrics

    Well, yeah sorta. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I was just wondering if aquatic cp's would help break down anything extra in the water, almost acting as a natural filter of sorts. Plus, i'll probably have some baby brine shrimp floating around for everyone.

    Probably normal non-CP aquatic plants would be better at absorbing waste products (dissolved nutrients such as ammonia and nitrate, rather than solids).
