I cut up 4 pieces of MarineLand filter matt fiber (the stuff that is white on one side and blue on the other) and placed that in the HOB
. Added a few mLs of API's version of a water clarifier. Going to let it settle/filter out.
Even though the manzanita has been boiled and dried, I am soaking it again in a smaller tank for a couple of days and will test pH and Ammonia.
Received a package today from ThatPetPlace which included a new intake tube for an AC50, 3 pack of sponges for an AC50, a nylon bag for the biomax, Seachem Excel, and more test solution for Ammonia.
