Now get to work!!
This is what I came back to after 2.5 weeks of spring break. Did I mention that I forgot to make sure the light timer was switched to on? Yeah. Light 24/7 and no water changes the whole time. The moss I actually floated in the water. The picture was after I lifted most of it up and scrubbed the algae off the front of the tank.
My plan of attack: I've wanted to change the substrate for a little bit so I'm doing that now and just completely restarting the tank. I did a 100% change and scrubbed the walls of the tank and everything in it. I'll have to recycle but I'm okay with that. I've still got the bacteria in the filter.
So the tank right now until I get gravel tomorrow (what do you think, black or natural???) It's baffled now too. :)
