View Full Version : RCS tank disaster...

Several days ago I came down to find that my RCS tank was very cloudy... I dunno what happened but the biofilter crashed. I lost almost all of my Red Cherry Shrimp but no Swordtail Fry that I can tell. Ammonia was in the 4-8 range on my API kit. Did lots of water changes and it's back under control but so empty now.

Tank Specs:
10G, Play Sand sub, LOTS of plants
AC20, Azoo Palm filter, and a Sponge filter rated for 10G itself
Both HOBs use AC20 sponges for pre-filters

12-15 small Swordtail fry
Pop was about 100 or more for the RCS
(now just a handful)

Some days I have to ask whether or not it's worth the effort. :(
