I give up!

Well, not seriously. But a couple of weeks ago I noticed my CO2 was running down, and intended to refill it on Mon when I have off work - as the place I go has no evening or weekend hours. Well, it didn't make it, so I've been without CO2 the last week. So I've just kinda been winging it, cutting down on my ferts, hoping things don't go too haywire too quickly.

You got it - the damn tank has never looked better. Limno A. is lush and purple, stargrass and red tiger lotus looking better than ever. And no algae other than a bit of green dust on the glass.

Can't wait to get the CO2 running again, and get the ferts back where they "should" be, and see things go straight to hell!

Lucky. Im in a world of hurt right now cause I forgot to turn the CO2 back on for two days. Now I'm away for the weekend so it' gonna be a pile of junk when I get back.

the only time I have seen BBA die in my tank is when I went on my honey moon for 9 days. No ferts, just CO2 and BBA died.

Peace,

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.
