Pesky White Clouds


Recommended Posts

Sharing this tip in case you plan on keeping White Clouds in a tank with a mattenfilter. I kept finding them behind the filter foam and discovered they were swimming down the lift tubes. I think it's their natural behavior to swim against the current. I folded up a small piece of 1/8 inch clear plastic mesh netting and zip-tied it around the opening. Could be a life saver too if you run an airstone in your tube as it might trap the fish. Problem solved 👍

This is good to know, as I just started converting my tanks to corner matten filters. I'll be bringing my white clouds in from the pond in a couple months, and never even thought about them swimming into the lifters.
