Thanks Charlie!
Its amazing, they will be moving along, munching all my precious leaves and when I get near they all freeze in that position..trying to camouflage themselves. It works pretty well, I had to look hard to find them...and apparently I missed 2 the first day cause there was more damage the next day and I found 2 more!!!

To Do:
I need to put my big pump into service with a bypass so the sump doesnt get drained.
Change my SLO from 1/2" to 1"
Add DWC
Finish big grow bed - but I need more media...ugh
Repair the 1500 gal tank with fiberglass. I felt bad dumping out the water in the bottom, alot of tad poles resided in there...
Cover the green house

Difficult to get motivated after a full day of work in 100deg heat...
