|Jaguar||So much horrible powdery crap on my AquaSoil again. I hate the stuff. I think I may tear the entire tank down and redo the substrate.|

I reduced the suicides in my tank by avoiding turning off the tank's light and the room light. The tank's light goes off a few hours before the living room lights do.
Any new pictures of the tank?

|Jaguar||A cardinal jumped today. So sad....|

|FlyingHellFish||Looks good Jaguar, much better. How strong are your lights? Might want to lower them, the HC Cuba should be hugging the substrate.|

Been a while. Quick pic:

Not once in 2 years have I had a jumper.... until today. Not one, but TWO crusty, cat haired covered harlequin rasboras on the floor. 7 left now.
Anyways, pics I guess.... tank looks okay.

|FlyingHellFish||^ If you knew how many fish die during transport, you would be pretty mad at the hobby itself.|

|Jaguar||I accidentally dropped one of the harlequins down the drain today. Graaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I'm so mad at myself. I should know better than to move them near the sink... or at least to put the drain covers on... I was so happy about them all surviving quarantine, too. Idiot mistake :'(|

^ Hey Jaguar,
If there is a local welding shop near you, they would most likely help you out for free. Have you tired looking fleabay for a regulator? Another option is buying one of those beer making regulators and then just adding the post body kit. I think a Micromatic is around 40 - 50 bucks new.

|Jaguar||Yeah.... getting it fixed is on my ever growing to do list. I need to order a replacement safety valve and then find someone who has a bench vise and stuff to get the valve out... and then whatever kinda glue to put it back in place. That's best case scenario though, there's still a possibility that the regulator has some kind of internal defect or failure and I could need a whole new body...|

|ThatGuyWithTheFish||Your regulator's been broken for that long?|

|Jaguar||The tank hasn't had CO2 at all in the 9 months it's been filled. No CO2, low light, and low fert dosing... it's low tech in practice, even though i have some "high tech" gear (ADA tank, custom LEDs, etc)|
|09-19-2013 10:16 PM|
|ThatGuyWithTheFish||How is this low tech if you have (or should have) CO2?|

money money money... if i get some spare cash i'll see if i can find one, but they're really expensive to ship here.
i think i may move the quarantine fish into the main tank today. they've been in there about a week which isn't long enough but i desperately need the space in my storage room :/
