8 hrs later.
Got some media out of the 37g canister filter and am gonna put it in the 20 to help cycle. I havent changed the media in 1-2 months so its loaded with BB. Changed carbon and GFO
in the 37g aswell, watched the fish for about an hour and fed them. Fed the corals too. Bought 2 timers for the 20 and 60. All fish and coral doing good
That's a nice looking tank. Will the light from the window be any threat to bleaching corals?
Break out the cigars
. Have you got you hillstream tank ready to roll yet? Will you run a separate filter alongside the flow regulator or will the sponges act as home to the tanks BB? Those maxi flow pumps are very handy (assuming that is what powers it).
Anyhow i had a productive day. Had the day off work for a doctors appointment which meant time at home when nobody knew i was here to bug me about anything. I did a tank wall scrub & 50% water change on one 20g in the morning and some replanting in that tank (I swear that fish rips up the plants for shade or something).
In the afternoon i shopped for some Hydrogen peroxide to spot treat algae and some liquid ferts to hopefully get the tank balanced and keep it from coming back. I drained to 50% water removed filters and spot treated the majority of my Cabomba which gets left alone by my snail. I coiled most of it into a small area and used a medicine dropper to apply it. I have to say it seemed to work. Cabomba looks cleaner after a few hours. While i had the water level down i also trimmed most of my old leaves off the Ludwigia. At that point i decided it was time to unclutter an area so i moved plants around for maybe 30 minutes to see if i could improve the scape. Trimmed some plants and replanted some tips to fill in blank areas. I'm still not happy with it but it's improving. I need smaller leaved plants or different shaped though.
Before HP treating and plant shuffle (note the brown on the Cabomba)
After (tried using my phone which takes BAD photos)
I may have to start a tank journal thread so i can go back and see the transition of this tank.
