Sometimes you may have an uninvited visitor that has begun growing inside your ecosystem, this is an easy fix but, the sooner you address it the better the results. If you have a brown spot forming inside your ecosystem all you need to remove it is a Qtip or an unused toothbrush.
First, pull off the lid (none of our products use glue on the lids) just hold the base firmly and pull off the top. The glass jars do come with a plastic seal that require a little more effort to remove but, do not worry it will not break.
Once you have the top off,Simply brush or rub the affected area and allow it to disburse into the water. This is a type of algae that the shrimp really enjoy. however, they are unable to get to it in some locations and need a little help from you. The water may become cloudy but will clear in a couple days.We also carry a very simple to use cleaning magnet which makes cleaning a breeze. You can find the magnets on our products page.
