Are you running carbon to help detoxify the tank?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...
What are you doing for dosing ferts? (nothing to do with the deet issue, just asking)
