Default What are Trophs. doing?

Hi everyone,
This has been driving me a little crazy past month or so. I see trophs. picking at something in water as though they are grabbing food, but there is no food. I don't see anything floating in the water.

Is it me or is this normal behavior? Appreciate feedback.

Thank you,
Cricket

They can see stuff that we can't so I would submit that they are just water column grazing. They are helping filter the system really.

You are good to go! How are they doing?

Funny I have heard of plankton in a natural environment , but really know little about the science behind it.

Never expected to hear that plankton could be found in a closed system. Interesting. Thank you.

Thank you Andrew. They are doing great! September will be a year since I got them from you and they are as healthy as when I received them.

Great to hear! They were a healthy bunch. Glad that Nitro Green did the trick.
