Nothing too exciting to report been pretty busy lately and it has been a slow process breaking down the old one. A few things I noticed when breaking it down.
There was a good bit of mulm in the lava rock but less than I expected. Also there was a ton of silt from the clay in there. While the water never got cloudy a ton had settled in the substrate and behind the island. I am going to try and prevent clay from entering the water the next go round.
Here is a picture of the silt with MTS trails throughout
Also isopods were climbing up the cords and getting stuck on the duct tape quite a bit.
Like I said nothing too exciting.
