had a bit of a... long day. first my co2 tank went empty on Friday in about a month of use. something doesn't sound right.
i couldn't refill it on Friday so had to wait till today and came home to lots of algae galore.
went to refill it, plugged it in, and left for few hours to run errands.
come home, tank is empty.... so much for being super careful.
went back to get it refilled, double checked all leaks with the bubble test and everything is peachy. so far so good.
used the hydrogen peroxide to get rid of all the algae i got from the last 2 days. maybe i got syringe needle trigger happy but.. let's say i lost some fish. im not happy about it. i did some massive water change and am hoping it'll do some good.
so all in all, i got more bba in my tank, likely a co2 leak, lost few fish, and oh.. some algae left still. i'm tempted to start over but few lessons learned if anyone would like to know.
1. have an extra filled co2 tank ready.
2. don't underestimate your syringe with hydrogen peroxide. it's cool to use it to kill algae. not your fish.
3. have an extra filled co2 tank ready. none of this would've happened if i did..
sometimes i don't like this hobby.
