i have been noticing these multiply since initial set-up, first only a few, now about 10-15 and i have been noticing my pod population steadily decreasing. Are these good or bad? If bad, how do i get rid of them?
yes and no..
seeing them in the beginning and throught out the tank maturing is common, but as the tank matures and natural predators eat them youwill see less and less, this does not mean they are not there. Try looking at your tank at night when the lights are off..
