Fly Deterrents?

Recommended Posts

When I was doing a water change yesterday I noticed that a lot of flies were hanging around on the underside of my lighting fixture. They were also "bathing" in my tank. Does anyone know of a good fly deterrent that would be fish / coral friendly?

I know it sounds crazy but a large ziplock bag 3/4 full of tap water just hang it close to where you want to keep the flys away. Its an OOOOOLLLLLDDDDDD school thing that works for some or is it just an old wives tale :).

definatly cheep to try tho.

Rudy's still does it, but I've never been able to get an explanation of how it works.

Flypaper might be an option. I guess it does count as cheap food. My orange shoulder tang seems to love them. I keep waiting for my marine betta to go after one.
