  1. the number 1 thing to do is cut down on feeding. the ostacods are acting as “decomposers”, essentially digesting any dead matter you have in your tank. also remove leaves that are covered in algae, or not in the best health.

    i’d say stop feeding completely for 5-7 days. you will see the number of ostacods greatly decrease, and after that, very carefully portion food and make sure there’s not too much dead plant matter to make sure no more population explosions happen 🙂
