I just spent one week away on vacation, leaving my aquarium to my trusted daughter. She fed and topped off perfectly, and I opted to leave the lights off for the week. Cyano
, which had been wicked for about 6 weeks, is gone! I hardly dare turn the lights on again!!
Also, while I was away, my new test kits arrived, including the seachem phosphate test. I've been using tap water, which you all had me worried about, but the phosphate test shows ZERO on the tap water. Tap water is also ZERO on nitrate.
Is this a miracle? Was all the cyano
due to too much light? Or is it a new-tank thing? Tank has been running since April, with two percula clowns, one (soon to have friends) green chromis, and a condy anemone who is flourishing and hasn't moved an inch since he arrived a month ago. Everyone is very happy right now, lucky me!
