Gnats

Post by Thejohnay » Thu Jul 21, 2016 7:35 pm

It appears there are some very minuscule flying gnats in our tank. I've noticed it the last couple days. My plan was to change out all the substrate this weekend but today noticed our smallest crabs has buried himself. If he is down to molt I'm going to have to hold off on changing the dirt. What should I do about these gnats?

Small cup of apple cider vinegar with a drop of dish soap in the tat. Completely out of the reach of the crabs! They will be attracted too it and it will kill them! If you can't keep it out of reach put it right over the lid.
