On that last note...

Tank teardown will happen in January. I've swapped out my cyano problems for cladophora and honestly I would rather have the cyano back than this. I'll be removing the AquaSoil and replacing it with Flourite, replacing all the plants, and seriously cutting back the lighting power.

Any tips to make the transition less stressful for my fish?

Substrate replacement never did happen, though I eventually pulled out all the HC (too hard to pick the clado off it). I had one more rasbora die, but that's to be expected... some of them are nearing 3 years old now. Tank's ok, gonna go out and see if I can find some more plants tomorrow. Clado is still a big issue, but I haven't seen cyano in months. Not sure if good or bad. Will update later... maybe.

Small update... husband accidentally knocked over my co2 tank and broke the needle valve off, so I've basically considered the reg a loss at this point (*sigh*) so still low tech... one more cardinal jumped and an otto died but otherwise nothing new really... maybe I'll post pictures eventually.

Oh, got some cheapo lily pipes - $20 shipped - aquahk8 on fleabay - not bad, curve down a bit too far I think, but I can't complain too much for the price.
