Well, maintenance day! I tested phosphates as this is the end of the month and GFO
. Very obvious it had been used up. They tested at .13. It is also of note I have been feeding almost every other day this week.
So, the GFO
has been switched out with Phosguard again. Tested at .17 after water change...must have been bubbles in the tube. Either way, testing will continue as the Phosguard works.
I also recharged the Seachem 'Purigen'...name is currently escaping me and replaced it in the reactor.
Things continue to look good. The derasa is looking amazing as is my coco worm. Blue symphodium continues to grow like a weed, not really caring if there is rock to grow on or not.
On an unrelated note, I read a short article about there being copepods in NYC's drinking water. That's kinda neat.
