So I've had my 5 gallon set up for forever. I wanted to cycle it but life kept getting in the way. So I figured
"Hey! While I'm waiting to start my cycle I can TOTES grow some plats! 8D"
Well me in all of my genius and inexperience decided to buy a dwarf lilly bulb from walmart........................After I read that they mostly just mold.......
Well guess what mine did? *Drumroll*
It did that about a week and a half ago.
I haven't had the time to clean it or tear it down as I've had all of my days off taken up by promised events and family stuff. On top of that I'm usually too exhausted to do anything at all after work so that's another reason.
Well now it's all over EVERYTHING and some of it has turned orange today.
I get off work tomorrow at 2 though so I could be rested in an hour or two and do a complete tear-down and reset.
How do I get rid of this stuff?!?!?! It's all up in my filter and EVERYTHING!!! It's all over my plant and airstone and GAH!!!!
My biggest worry is the plant! It's starting to DIE! I paid $8 for that thing! >.< I LOVE
it too!!! It's too cute to let go of! How can I clean it without killing it?
Everything else I'll probably just boil and scrub.
Is it ok to boil gravel or will it explode? =/ I plan on boiling it on the grill outside just in case but I still don't want to hurt myself, my animals, or my mom's deck. =/
BTW for those that didn't know or hadn't figured it out yet Genie is in a 2 gallon jar on my dresser. Not the 5 gallon tank. I'd never let that happen to him. =[
Any help would be welcome! =]
