Well, it sounds as if I can't win for losing. Can't get the livestock out because I have nowhere to put them. I also have 4 freshwater tanks. Space is definately limited. Will do another 10-15 gallon water change tomorrow and vacuum out the top layer of gravel. I added the BB additive this afternoon and put Purigen in the trickle filter with Chemi-Pure Blue, Poly-Filter and some floss. Would vacuuming the top layer of gravel (which is covered in cyano
) cause problems with regaining my BB since I added the additive? A reminder: I only put the new gravel in there in the first place because I had vacuumed out so much of my original live sand substrate trying to get rid of the the turf algae I began with and the cyano
I have had for 4 months now. I like the looks of a substrate rather than a bare bottom tank and was trying to give cover, etc to the Nass snails and brittle star.
