Red face Re: Sound off if you are from the 808 state!!!!

HEY GUYS.. sorry I took so long to get the email.. but HAWAII KAI checking in! =)
Holy crap I've been waiting for something like this for a WHILE, but it couldn't have come at a worse time!

My planted tank was going good with 6 bright beautiful discus, a couple rams, corys, shrimp, etc. And the plants were doing GREAT; I had some anubias nana, Ludwidgia cuba, 2 purple crypts(forgot the name), and a load of H.C. as the foreground!

well I'm working with about 260watts of light in my 55g tank and pressurized co2, and about a week or two ago.. my dad thought he'd be nice and clean my tank for me.. (he doesn't have real common sense if you know what I mean).. But when I got home, the co2 was BLASTING out of the counter, EVERY SINGLE fish was dead, and all the plants were floating at the top all messed up.. I tried to save the plants but I guess they were moved around too much or something because they got all soft and died.

So I don't think I'm going to have a tank any time soon, but I consider myself a pretty knowledgable planted tank-er and can help with any questions you have! THANKS!!

Sorry to hear about your tank. Sounds like it was a nice setup I saw your "blueprints" but, couldn't find any pics of your tank here. Do you think you'll go the same route or use this as an opportunity to go a whole new way? Either way you should post a journal, I'd love to see the pics of your tank.

Smile Re: Sound off if you are from the 808 state!!!!

hahaha.. I totally forgot about those! (The tank ended up looking nothing like it though)
-Dang, I was reading all my old posts and I sound like an idiot. lol.

Well to answer you, I was thinking about going a different direction with it, but I didn't think it would have that same "dream tank" feeling.. *EDIT*- I've been thinking about this post all night, and I really do want to do something more complex, I even drew out a whole new 'blueprint'! I think I'll start a journel thread soon to show you. =)


p.s.
THANKS SO MUCH for emailing me about this thing!! I was thinking about giving up fish for a few years, but now I am so stoked to set my tank back up! Can't wait to show you guys either! ^_^

Hmmm. Did you have a dumping syndrome with your Co2 tank? That is sad to hear. Hopefully the next one will be better. Good luck.

PS on a further note. We should have a separate thread for hawaii aquascapers. I'll start the new thread or someone lese can start it from Hawaii. Too tired to post and take pics. Thanks

if that's what it's called, then yes, I had a "dumping syndrome." It sucks so much more knowing that everything was going great until I got home! But I'm sure the next one won't be sabotaged.

And about the new thread.. I guess that could go under the "What are you keeping?" thread by mats808.

Honolulu guy here too. Never realized we had our own section here (I've mostly been on TPT). Re-doing my tank all over again as I type (need new scenery ). Anyway, anyone wanna trade locally? I'll post what I have in the 'what are you keeping' thread.

Portland huh? Its nice there. My wife and I visited OMSI to see the star wars exhibit while we were living in Seattle a couple years ago. Got to walk around a millineum falcon! Portland seems to be the second most popular transplant city after Vegas. Sorry to hear about the lack of fried rice. if you drive north an hour and a half there is some pretty great Hawaiian food. Good of you to chime in on the HI thread.

Coming up from the west side Makakilo Represent.

This is great that we have a section in this forum. With the growth of this hobby on the islands, its nice to let the mainlanders know that we exist.
