beginning to wonder
I have always been very religous about regular water changes, making sure the light is on regulated times of the day, even bought the very expensive bulbs. Followed a very strict regimen of fertilizers.
I went out of town a month ago. Of course, the day after I leave, my wife calls and says the entire light assembly has quit working. I have never used a heater in the water(live in Miami), water has always maintained a stable temp.
Since I couldn't come home my first worry was the water getting to cold without the light. I had my wife go to the store to buy a heater to maintain temp.
I finally get home 3 weeks after I was supposed to. All my wife did was feed the fish everyday. After 4 weeks of no light, no fertilizers, no water changes, I was very worried how the tank was going to look.
OMG, the grass has grown almost halfway up the tank(55 gallon), the leaves have never looked better on the stem plants, the water is crystal clear and the fish have never looked healthier.
Really beginning to wonder about all the regimented schedules and time spent at it.
