Dang it. The force is not with me. I hope it doesn't kill my fish. I get it now. Jeez. I don't have time to do a water change. Maybe in a hour.


May the force be with you.

If you did one small dose in a 55 I can't see it trashing the tank.. prolonged exposure would probably be an issue..

I'm hoping not. I needed to do a water change today either way. By the way, I've been running my finnex only for 2 days and my plants are already starting to pink up.


May the force be with you.

Update on dosing my tank with metricide 14 with the activator. I've lost 2 fish. 1 was a newly added, so it may have just been stress.

But today I lost a male sword that I've had since I started up from the beginning. I am assuming his was probably from the chemical.

All specs look good on the water. So far no ammonia spike, nitrates and nitrites are 0. Now let me say, I am currently using the dipsticks. Haven't upgraded to the liquid api master test yet.

Did another water change today. Fingers crossed for no more deaths.




May the force be with you.
