    ok. thanks. I will do that.

    That will start the cycle all over?

    Should i use the saw blade on the screen?

    Also I have 3 peppermint shrimps in the sump - do u think that significantly contributes to the algae in the sump?

    Thanks !!!

    Cycle? No, you can't have a cycle on a screen. Cycles are caused by excess dead stuff in your tank, such as killing lots of periphyton by moving rocks around.

    Blade yes, if needed to get to the white part.

    I don't think shrimp are contributing, however adding a snail would not hurt, to break up the organic particles further.
