Something way outta whack definitely went down in my tank, and I don't know when exactly either, but I know I'm seeing effects of it... I noticed that I no longer see lots of Colonista snails on the glass in the morning, and come to look closer, all their empty shells are scattered along the sand. Probably a good 30-40 of them. Dead. I also haven't seen an asterina starfish in a week or so. I ran full parameter checks once again today. 0's across the board. I was half expecting to see an ammo spike, but nothing.
My BTA still looks like junk, so I took a baster and cleared the rock it's attached to thinking maybe something it irritating it. My softies still hate me. I'm now running purigen and floss in my HOB
. I also added some Seachem Stability in case of a misreading on ammo. I will test again tomorrow.
Frustrated doesn't come close... 8-/
