Well here's an update on all that's transpired. It turns out my white bloom decided to become a green algie bloom for reasons beyond me. But with the tireless help from jayc we think we solved it.everything I done in the previous posts didn't work so I sent jayc another photo as things were getting very bad that's when he clocked it as green algie bloom. So off I went to an aquatic centre and bought myself the 24watt Fish R Fun green killing machine sterilizer, put in the tank and 28hrs later there is evidence thet the tank is starting to clear. I will update with photos proberly every two days to show what's happening or every day if there are marked improvement.Again my thanks must go to jayc for staying with me on this, he'sbeen brilliant Cheers for now and lookout for the photos Richie
You just need to block off the filter inlet, so that shrimps won't be sucked to their deaths.
Sponge, foam or stainless steel mesh will work fine.
