    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.

    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?

    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 always worked very well IME.
