Brilliant! Makes me want to run out and buy a scale. Too bad the CO2 tank is too heavy for little ferts weigh scale to handle.

Thanks G48 for checking up on me! Other than the cancer, all is going well. The tank is in jungle mode, so tomorrow I plan on performing a big trim and cleaning out the canisters. I'm finding out that during the summer the tank is put on the back burner, there's just to many other things to do.

Regarding the cancer, last week I had CT scan and it showed the main tumor growing after six months of getting smaller. This is not unusual for pancreatic cancer. So the doctor changed the chemo regime to new one, so hopefully this will help.

Family is doing well. All three of my daughters moved back home due to Covid-19 and luckily for me they're fun and easy to have around, it's been really great having them around the house, it's never boring.

I hope all is going with you, family and tank also!

Hi DD70, sorry for such a slow response.

I currently don't have a UV sterilizer, though I've thought many times about getting one. I think they would be good to have, especially if one had expensive fish and one wanted to keep as many pathogens out of
the water column as possible. Hopefully others that have UV sterilizers will chime in and provide their thoughts

Good to hear from you Ken. Can certainly understand the "during the summer the tank is put on the back burner, there's just to many other things to do" comment. Likely applies to many of us.

Was hoping for continued success (getting smaller) with the cancer, but as you stated, certain things are "not unusual". Hopefully the new regime will not have any more or new side effects.
Nice to know the daughters are still around - likely keeps the mind distracted :-)
