Somewhat busy day. The perspex cover had a bow in it so I thought I'd straighten it out. Result was I snapped it, (old I guess), and had to cut another to size from the hardware store. Also replaced the larger CO2
bottle so stocked up there again. Will leave the smaller one on for a bit.
Pretty rainy day to go to stores.
All the relatives thought the tank looked good so I didn't mention the mid-week clean
Got rid of some val, re-planted some other plants that escaped and generally tidied up tank. Ran out of time to make it to the fish store for filter sponge so maybe next week.
Cleaned out the small tank as well which had some weird sort of algae on it. Sadly the snail wouldn't touch it or couldn't get to it as it was on the filter pump. Cleaned rest of filter pump and working much better now. (The filter pump is part of the hob
filter but sits submerged as part of the inlet pipe.)
