Who Sneezed In My BC 14??

Well I just got back from my 2 1/2 week break and left my BC 14 unattended the whole time and came back to this. I'd had only 1 snail and a crab (all the rest where in my 46bow ) but I've moved around 10 more in and everything is good. It looks like someone sneezed all over the front.




Well here is its now. Back to clean (kinda)

Your fine. Those nutrients developed over constant nitrate build up because you didn't perform a water change. You still may now have one because you had an underwater atom bomb living in your tank for a week or two

yes reduced feeding will really help...

black_magik...my tank has gone three months with no water changes and that has never happened to me...it appears there is Bryopsis growing all over the rocks aswell, which would be more an ongoing nutrient problem then two weeks of neglect..
