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!!
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
