    feeding screen cleanings

    what is the best way to use the screen cleanings for feeding both the fish and corals..i usually clean my screen in a small container and use r/o water..is there a way to preserve the cleanings so you can feed everyday between cleanings..thanks much....munson

    Welcome.

    Just grab a little from the screen and feed it...

    If you feed scrubbed algae to your fish then kinda defeats purpose of a scrubber ?

    thanks santa, thats pretty much what i've been doing,,,black widow, i'm not feeding the whole screen to the fish so i really don't see the harm,,my screen water runs off over a foam block
    would squeezing that into the tank once a week benefit the corals or am i better off not doing it?????

    I would not feed anything from the screen that required squeezing myself. Like your sponge (that I'm assuming is to trap bubbles or something) would be filled with organics that I would not think you would want squeezed back into the tank.

    If you want to feed scrubber algae back to the inhabitants, just tear off a chunk and give it to them.
