During a water change two hatchets jumped behind the tank where I couldn't reach to rescue them.
They all eventually jump out. Always.
I've given up on hatchets. Even with a full canopy with just a small area cutout for the HOB filter, they still managed to suicide themselves. I even found a crispy dead guy wedged in between the canopy and the trim of the tank, an area mere millimeters wide. That was a one in a million jump to accomplish that.
Yeah, I took off the lid and hung a separate light to let it grow up out of the top to see if it would flower but I don't like having so much water evaporate everyday so I just cut it in half and put the top in my 30 gallon grow out tank. It has like 5 side shoots starting to grow out of it.
How has the GLA regulator held up? Much adjusting with BPS?
I haven't had to touch the needle valve in months. I'm now using more bps than I can count though. I only ever had the one problem when I gassed the fish that I described here but I still think it was just a little clog from using an old CO2 tank, not the regulator's fault. I also have still not needed to refill the tank which I am glad for.
Played around with some photo ideas for maybe entering a contest. The rope light I had laying around, but did not give the star effect I was sort of hoping for. It just looks like someone had some rope light laying around.
