I guess I’m just a little proud to be honest.

I had it at a 50% chance that I’d have a running tank at this point. Especially when I was siliconing this sob.

I’m even more shocked that everything is doing remarkably well. Only one has died from hydrogen peroxide and ain’t a polyp closed in sight. It’s like an explosion of growth.

It’s a serendipitous miracle because it’s certainly not me doing anything right.

Started Red slime remover 2hrs ago, hooked up an air pump with dual outlet both air stones in each end of the tank making bubbles and the lid off the skimmer for extra oxygen.
To my cyano....BYE FELICIA!!
I’ve been running it for 5 days now. Today was the killer, most of it’s gone. Frags are a little grumpy about the lack of food though.

Are the instructions different for yours? Mine said dose, wait 48 hrs and dose again if necessary, then wait at least a week before using again.

I’ll re check the instructions but I just dosed once and have kept it running. It seems to be working now. Either that or nutrients have bottomed out.
