Added 8 pots of val up back of tank to replace ambulia and hoping it does well (but not too well and spreads quickly haha). It did cross my mind that I ditched about a bucket of the stuff a few years ago and here I was buying more

Have been unable to replace the CO2 bottle so have hooked up the small one which generally lasts several months. The tunz diffuser I removed the impeller cover off is going well - in fact a little too well and bubbles are getting blown out the bottom before getting chopped up sigh. Will see how it goes and maybe put cover back on (soon as I find it).

Water leak detectors connected to wifi. Cheap ones - they work but I need to ask someone to set them off and see if I get a message outside house at shops or something. Placed one near tank and one in kitchen.

Finally replaced the large bottle of CO2 yay. Will let the small one keep running until empty.

Replanted the val and repositioned the diffuser to be more vertical. All working! Then I noticed one of the leaves from the val was over diffuser intake but somehow it all works great. Soooo crossed fingers and tip-toed away.

I'm still contemplating CO2 - not sure on it mainly because of either killing my fish with a bad setting or malfunction, or remembering to fill the bottles! My DH bought a couple water detector things for the water heater and I might have to grab one of those.

Hahahaha "tip-toed" away!!!

Delapool's 150 gallon tank

It still works fine amazingly - very strange. I think the small bottle will last several months and the large one about 4 or 5 months. Large bottle is about 6kg so about 12 pounds I guess. Expensive to get first one but after that just refills or bottle swaps luckily.

Another water change in main tank and nothing bad to report! Plants stayed put, everything works and driftwood has not floated off on the tide.

So quick water change and then (sigh) I though quick clean of shrimp tank. In the end lots of scrubbing off green spot algae, more tape under light and Iím wondering if tank is getting more indirect light now blinds have been removed. Looks nice now though.

I definitely see the correlation between high light and GSA. My tank is only running 30 PAR maximum and canít see any. Cyno beneath the substrate line has reared its ugly head since reinstating water changes and fert dosing.

It's nice when there is a easy/ peaceful tank moment.

One of the Cryptoheros Septemfasciatus (apparently, another auction impulse buy) channelled his inner yoyo loach and managed to escape the tank somehow. All covers on and plastic around pipes/cords (but only escape area possible).

Picked up to bin and surprised to find still alive after 2 metre fall. Into tank and disappeared into plants so seemed ok. Fingers crossed.
