My AGB tank keeps getting infested with fruit flies. Any tips on how to get rid of most of them without having to totally clean the tank? Any tip on keeping them from coming back?
Don't AGBs need some form of ventilation?oh lord i know there are tons of threads on this because we all have this issue!!! i found keeping a fish aquarium lid (solid glass) on there where there are no holes in addition to fly strips(classy?) seemed to cure them...also if you have anything moist like sinks, dishes, towels, or anything they can find to lay eggs in they will stay! I usually could get rid of flies in the cage but they would set up residence else where...that is also part of living in the south good luck to you...also, if you do fly strips use the molassis...(sp?) i knew a guy who accidentlly used a fly strip with an insecticide...dare i say what happened next...
