Looks great, Delapool! I think that it's going to work out rather well.

Still staying put this morning.

I looked at seachem flourish glue which said it can be used underwater but not sure if there is anything fish-safe as well?

It's too convoluted on the driftwood stacking to glue outside the tank.

Nah, it was the place of my parents farm and then the name of a small hobby farm we had.

Causes much mirth here as well at the local aquarium society as well

The catfish are loving the new driftwood. No idea why - it's local hardwood and out in the open a bit but they have been busy checking it out.

Busy days. Two angelfish have been unwell with a mouth bacterial infection. Treated one in tank with pimafix/melafix & triple sulpha. Starting to look ok, the lip is fairly clean now.

The other was treated with pima/mela and is now in QT for a bit over a week with triple sulpha and tetracycline (furan 2 on order). Treated with potassium permanganate at 2ppm on weekend and seems to have perked up. Still iffy though.

Activated a new slide (first one!) for the seneye reef. It is telling me the ph is 7.5 and the co2 probe was saying 7 so one is telling porkies. The digital ph pen agreed with the CO2 probe but will have to do a api ph test tomorrow (I think the moral is never own more than one way to measure ph).

What do you think caused the bacterial infection?

That's a really good question on the cause. Filters had been getting cleaned, I know I did a complete water test several weeks prior to this and generally over winter it is pretty stable.

One other thought is that I have been using a commercial root tab made from white clay and organic fertiliser. I do wonder on what the organic fertiliser is exactly and if that may be a problem. No one else seems to report any issues so I've put that down to coincidence so far.

At the moment I'm guessing it may have been a few little things that added up but honestly don't know.

Tested the tank ph today with the co2 ph probe (6.7); api test (6.8); digital ph pen (6.9) and seneye reef (7.5). Plan to try re-seating the seneye ph slide chip and clean the housing next water change. Grrrrr. I'd love to get it working as could see ph across the tank.

Can you not recalibrate the seneye?

Yeah I know you are competent so was just wondering why a bac infection out of nowhere.

Bit worrying 🤔

True, true - good to chat on it. Tbh, this is the second time I'm wondering on these root tabs. Usually the angelfish bicker with no troubles so hoping a one-off.

The Seneye is annoying. In theory I should just place a new slide in the meter every month. The meter reads the colour change of the slide but air in meter casing can cause it to be wrong. Will try re-seating. On the plus side if it never works it would be one less ph meter
