phosphates in frozen foods
I was going to give my tank some cyclopeeze last nite and remembering what was said here about phos I decided to test and WOW its off the charts. I dumped it down the sink. So how do you rinse things such as rotifers and cyclopeeze? I always rinse the larger foods.fish happens

I would rinse it in RO water
29 gallon-planted community
20 long frag tank
75 gal-planted goldfish
75 gallon mixed reef with 20 gallon sump

I put it in a shrimp net and let the water run through it.

I rinse the larger food in a net, but cyclo and rotifers are too small, is there a really fine mesh net that would contain them?fish happens

How about a coffee filter?

Good idea KF, you can also buy a brine shrimp net...but the coffee filter inside your regular net would work just as well.
Also to control any potential phosphate you may also want to invest in a chemical media such as SeaGel...it always worked very well IME.3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon
