anyone having problems with flying termites or "gamugamo" lately?

these insects are very good in finding ways to enter a room with lights on. i keep finding them in the fuge every morning. :evil:

i plan to put a mosquito net(or something like it) to keep them from getting into the water. or would a strong enough fan keep them away?

can anyone share their experience with this?

suggestion...
kung gusto nyo ma-lessen ang gamu-gamo, you can do these simple steps:
1. kumuha kayo ng batya at lagyan ng tubig.
2. itapat ang batya sa ilalim ng ilaw.

the reason why you find gamu-gamo in your sump is because nagre-reflect yung ilaw sa water... it's the same principle.
20G aquarium without sump and skimmer:
6T5s: actinic/6500K/12000K/actinic/6500K/actinic with fans
1 pump for circulation
inhabitants: 3 orange-lined cardinal (apogon cyanosoma) & 7 snails
corals: blue actino, ricordeas (yellow & orange), open brains (green & red), orange brain, green lobo brain, chalices (green & violet), 2 red scolemia, celerina (green and pink), green star polyp, blastomussa (pink, red, violet/green, blue, red/violet, violet/red, red/blue).

All you need is a fish in the sump. Live natural food :)
