Mystery Oil in the Tank
OK folks, solve this one. I have a 55 long with the following equipment.
-Suspended tek light
-Eheim canister filter
-Inline hydor heater
-Inline CO2 reactor
-CO2 cylinder with regulator
I came home today to find an oil slick on top of my aquarium. Now, there is one thing that i think might have caused it, an [censored][censored][censored][censored][censored][censored][censored] roommate who moved out today. This roommate happened to play french horn, and the oil smelled suspiciously like french horn oil (my father is a juliard french hornist, so i've grown up with it). However, that might just be my mind. There are no sources or tracks of oil that i can see going into it. I blotted up and sucked out as much as i could. I don't really know how this will affect the tank, i guess we'll just have to see. My question is, do any of the above devices contail oil? For instance the canister filter motor housings? I took the HOT magnum aparts, but found no evidence of leaking. Any thoughts?
