Hello Mary, about the fresh water mussel. I actually tried mine with a few fresh water snails (edible snail) about 4 months ago and they have been doing very well, none died.

Hello Mary. There is a big difference in nitrites and nitrates. That is why people kept asking if it was a typo.  Nitrites come first and are harmfull. Then come the bacteria that eat up the nitrites and produce nitrates that are harmless. I understand that the babies can dirty up a tank in a hurry.  On the filter, I am interested in what you come up with. I would like to learn from you guys on that. A ball valve to choke down the flow might be helpfull. Keep us posted.
