So, I'm sleeping last night and my dad calls me at 8:42
...and says "Your Red Algae is out of control, I'm going to put your fish in the ten gallon and ciphon it all out and do a complete water change"....8-O. WHOA! hold your horses cowboy, you will not! Yea..let's put 6 fish in a ten gallon that already has one fish in it. Talk about gasping for air...
Anyways, I said "no!..i'll be there in a minute".
Backtrack. Since this "cyanobacteria problem" I've been using cyanobacteria treatment and changed my water. So, it got worse.
I ran to my work and bought a ciphon hose and some filter pad that you cut yourself.
I went home and took the two yellow fish with black stripes and put em in my 10 gallon with my 3 stripe damsel.
well, me and my dad took out all the live sand and stupid slate flat rock and took it alll out and filtered the water and now its great! (mind you..no fish have died). the bacteria was all up in the live sand and rocks so i had to rid of them. now its crystal clear with buffer and filter pads and i bought an air pump for a little more flow of water, thoguht it would be a little advantageous.
so...ive decided no more flatbed rocks..and now i just have marine sand. not live.
