Well I just got done going through a huge adrenaline rush...
My mom was spraying (basically deet) her insect repellent on herself about a foot away from my tanks, and she sprayed A LOT of it to.
So I didn't think anything of it I was like "next time don't do that next to my tanks please" So I keep going through my day, get ready to do my weekly water change and then I see 7 shrimp laying on the table.
I immediately go into "wt*?" mode and question why they would jump
Then I hear my filter
"GURGLE GURGLE GURGLE" as it overflows with foam
Then I go into "WT* IS GOING ON" mode
Then (x3) i do a 97 percent water change and clean out all my filter media (some is inaccessible) then refill with the usual DI water...
and now im typing this, my hands are still shaky...
Are you running carbon to help detoxify the tank?

What are you doing for dosing ferts? (nothing to do with the deet issue, just asking)

Didn't even think about this, thanks for the heads up!

going to upload more pics tonight of the tank, ALOT of growth since original picture, you'd be surprised how often I have to trim these guys. For such difficult plants to grow, pretty simple to me for the most part.

Here is a couple of pictures of my Dutch Style Aquascaped Tank.
Enjoy :) I got more pics if you would like them.
Nicely done. So many aquarists consider a tank with a bobbing dog with a diving bell on his head an aquarium. To each there own, but to truly learn how to Aquascape in the manner of the ada the beauty is second to none well done!
