Near Death Experience
Yesterday there was an emergency at work that required me to stay the night into the early afternoon today. Upon returning home, like always, I go to my tank to check and admire the Flora and Fauna. However, today was different.
My CPD's were listing and struggling to breathe. My shrimp looked already dead. Scrambling to find out what happened and do an emergency water change I noticed my return had fallen.
My tank was blasting Co2 with no surface agitation. I left the water level lowered and let the water re-oxyginate. The CPD's rebounded in about 30 mins. Shrimp look ok but not in the clear yet, still acting lethargic.
The other day I rushed through my tank trimming and cleaning and didn't take my time to make sure everything is on correct. So my point is, take your time and do your job right the first time. Don't make the same mistake I did.
Don't complicate things, simplify them!
