Steve AND Quarry
The first part of this is a thank you to both of you for helping me with my hypo. If anyone wants to see dedication from these 2, go to the sick forum and see my questions on hypo. I stayed with the hypo treatment vs copper and had a lot of trouble..most of it my doings Im sure. I was doing 2 water changes a day and for 8 weeks. It was worth it. Im ick free!!
My fish have been back in the main for 4-6 weeks now and doing well. So thanks to both of you!
Secondly, I saw a post of Steves the other day regarding someones tank looking like it had "snot" in it. After my fish went back in the main, I cleaned the tank well and reset it again to eventually get new fish for my main. I refilled it with water and had the heater and 2 HOB
filters going with a small PH
. I used new water and just wanted to make sure I didnt have any leaks. After a week or so I turned on the light to the QT
tank and saw strings of what I call snot everywhere. I had nothing in there. Well I syphoned off this stuff and did a 40-50% water change and put 5-6 krill in there to start the cycle. Before I did the water was getting really cloudy. Now 2 weeks later the water is so snotty and cloudy, I cant see the heater in the back of the tank. So I cleaned it all out again tonight and will let it dry out. What did I do wrong? Im sure it was an algea bloom of some sort...how can I avoid this now?
Also do I just fill the QT
tank with new fresh SW
then throw the krill in there to rot? When I was pulling all of the water out tonight the krill was all slimy...is this normal? It wasnt in one peice but just slime.
Help me start my QT
tank off right this time.
Thanks for all the help and time.
