How long do bacteria blooms usually last? Is there someway of telling how long one will sustain itself?
Thanks! One of my tanks is going through it right now and its so tempting to try something.DoubleDutch said:From about 2 days till about 14 days normally I'd say. Depends on the amount of substances that can be eaten.
Best way is to do absolutely nothing (hands out and nonwaterchanges of filtercleaning).
As these heterotrophic bacteria have there party they go automatically.
You are right but I wouldn't try using that for bacterial bloom. Quite a different thing.smee82 said:Im not sure if it will work for bacterial blooms but live daphnia will eat free floating algae in algae blooms but it might be worth trying. At worst you just giving your fish something live to eat.
I know its different but the thing that makes me want to try is you can feed them a yeast mixture if you dont have green water.DoubleDutch said:You are right but I wouldn't try using that for bacterial bloom. Quite a different thing.
OP try to do nothing (how tempting it is hahaha).
