No, but I have had that happen before. I killed them with forceps. How many are in there? you could flood it for 20 minutes, net the ants out and then drain.

Well only a little get in. I think they're biting a hole in the syran wrap; unless it's a hole I accidentally put there and didn't notice. I've changed it every time I notice though.

i just noticed you have a hydor eth 200 listed in the to get list. you wont need that in hawaii unless your in ac and its cranked really low. even then i doubt you can get room temps below 60. in the summer months you might have too high water temps.

Oh that's right. It was on my plans but it never crossed my mind that I won't need it. Good thing I haven't ordered it lol. During the summer I'll make sure it stays cool inside. Thanks for the heads up.

Here you can see:
Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 > Atomic Bubble Counter > Atomic Check Valve > Atomic Inline Diffuser

Hey, I just noticed you are going to the bubble counter first then the check valve. Usually I put the check valve after the regulator. Did you buy the bubble counter with the built in check valve?

Yes. This bubble counter has a check valve as well. So in total I have two check valves.

Filled tank at Oahu Fire. $20 and they filled it while i waited.

*note, the Atomic Regulator does require a seal. I'm glad GLA provided the brass permaseal; although it looks a little different than the one pictured on their site.

Good to know they are still there. Did you happen to see how much it cost to fill a 10lb tank? I'm thinking $40 since yours is a 5lb.

BTW You've got some great growth for 2 weeks! Almost good enough to flood.

I would flood the tank but I actually trimmed the HC after the picture and spread the trimmings to the empty spots. I'm hoping that next weeks picture will show more growth

Good technique. I did that too. It makes it spread out a lot faster.
