It's hard to see it due to the big ball of crypts stuffed into the right side of the tank, but there's a pretty big piece of driftwood back there that has hosted Anubias Nana for the past four years...

Leaky's Fast and Loose- 36 Gallon Bowfront

I guess it's time to start a tank journal, now that this setup is going to undergo a hard reset and re-scape.

This tank started life as a 36 gallon mid-tech tank with 2x65 watt power compacts,...

Dude, tell me about it. I just got off the phone with Catalina Aquarium because my Coralife PC fixture just blew. It was only ten years old!

Unless you have some crazy heavy metal or something in your water (unlikely), you're good to go. Just dechlorinate it with a chlorine and chloramine remover and let er rip.

What is the ph? Unless you have liquid rock, you can probably work around the water out of the tap.

My SWAG (scientific wild a** guess) is there are going to be enough diversions in the tank that excessive flow won't be a problem.

Two suggestions-

1- Add a second powerhead, which is what I'm probably going to do.

2- Add an air pump on a timer.

I think a second powerhead will provide additional flow in the lower...

My guess is it can be salvaged by cutting off the damaged leaves, securing it to some driftwood in a well-fertilized tank and leaving it alone. Damaged leaves don't repair themselves and new leaves...

I have advocated big water changes for over ten years. If you're using straight tap water, you stand little chance of making huge parameter changes. I do 75-80% every week to ten days.

Just a thought- when soaking the wood, dump a bunch of peroxide in the water. It should help kill algae and fungus without permanently affecting the piece.
