Well, hopefully the OP will come back someday to shed some additional light on this...................

:pop2:
...indeed. Still no news as to how this occured.

Maybe he (OP) is out hunting...the person responsible!
Or forgave his roomate because he realized that leaving a high tech planted tank in someones hands who doesnt understand the pain we go through or the years we have been at perfecting the craft (or even the Nitrogen cycle) is no ones fault but his own.
I don't really know what happened...I have my roommate a list of very simple instructions. Left him pre-treated water for water changes, ferts and fish food...Came home two weeks later and it looked like this. I was devastated. And I was the one who cleaned the filter inlet :(
I was in morning...sorry for the lack of response
It looks to me he left the lights on forever.

My room mate did the same once and put the lights ON again after the timer switched them off. He told me the room did not look cool enough when the aquarium was dark.

Sorry for your aquarium, Pal!

In all fairness, he was right about the room not looking cool enough. You can't blame him for that. :rolleyes:
Hey BJ...is your roommate still breathing¿¿¿

true true, that's how i'd look at this situation, i went on holidays for 4 weeks, i had a small stem of stargrass (HZ) and it took over my whole 25 gallon tank in 4 weeks, pretty crazy stuff
Unfortunately the after picture looks like my best attempt so far...

:crybaby:
Keep with it, you'll get it eventually.

Roommate is alive and well, never to be asked another favor again. Lesson learned, Game Over.

Still no idea how this happened, just moving on and trying to rebuild.
When I go on hols (normally 15-18 days) I reduce lighting period to 6 hours with less WPG, turn off CO2 completely, no ferts for the holiday.

Then get my Dad to come around every 3-4 days and check the auto feeder isn't clogged ;)

When I get home I tidy up whatever the mess is and get it all back to full regime perkinesss ;) Part of the fun pulling it back together again

AC
man that sucks!!!

But this is your chance to make your tank better than it was before and fix those little things you want to fix.
After much hard work I have revived the tank, and I must say it is even better than before (IMO). I will post pictures as soon as they become available.
I look forward to seeing the "new" version.

Wow. That was fast. ;)
