:wavingyellow:Big "Hey Now" to those I know who are still here and a hello to those I don't. I've been away and sadly down to 6 Tanks now as I travel extensively. Since I am home a week a month, my BH is doing the feeding and the deep sand beds (DSB's) in all tanks make it easy enough for her to just add pre-measured food packets and de-chlorinated (Prime) water due to evaporation, no testing, water changes, additives required, self sustaining other than food and water to top off tanks. That said, I do test every now and then using Seachem tests, still hitting zero's on nitrates, ammonia etc. The DSB's ensure clean, clear, nitrate and ammonia free water and after over 2 years I still have had no issues or losses. When I first switched to DSB's I screwed up when a diffuser on my Diatom filter came off and the water pressure pushed the sand away to the bottom, killing my 2 clowns and the Mandarin in my 24G cube, truly pissed me off. So lesson learned, no more diatom filter or anything that may disturb the DSB, HOB and floss for a few hours after glass cleaning if needed. I look forward to seeing some of the posts as there's always new stuff to learn about.
