one of my parvo cultures had a bunch of die-off over two days in a new Food Safe see-through bucket. Anyone else had issues with those buckets when new.
I'm not sure if it was something about the bucket or what else it could be. but there was a not-right smell and debris accumulating at the bottom and upon inspection the debris contained a lot of dead or dying twitching adults, and tons of ciliates.

So I siphoned out the water not on the bottom and ran through a large sieve to keep only the strong swimming adults and moved them to another container with fresh saltwater.
