Not too bad, I mean, it looked that way before haha! I did get that hair stuff goin on. I will be able to gauge how bad it is now that the glass is clean... It was so bad before that I couldn't really tell. I need to vac the sand real bad now tho and my sump all of a sudden blew out all these grey tube things?! Gross!

Ya and some of it you'll just scratch your head in disbelief lmao this is a vermetid snail I found in my fuge that's like 100x bigger then the ones I've normally seen (its about 2.5"-3" long). It makes a long sticky thread that it let's flow in the current ( I've seen it over a foot long lol) to catch food and reel it in.
