I'm about to embark on another deployment upon the Ocean. My system is going back into the hands of my less than enthusiastic wife for at least 4-8 weeks. I'm leaving her with a happy system. Did a small water change today, mainly to remove some solids from the bottom of the tank. Completed my monthly plumbing overhaul and serviced the pump and pipes. Scrubbed the algae off the inside of the tank so things are crystal clear now. Then just for fun threw some seeds into the media perhaps to give her a surprise in a few weeks.
Over all, all is well. The ICH is gone. Yeah! The fish are adjusted and the crawfish isn't trying to kill anyone. I had to make him a exclusive feeder out of scrap PVC pipe. The fish weren't leaving any scraps in the bottom of the tank for him. Now he has a nice private place to go eat, I call it "THE SEWER."
Good luck, see you in Spring.
