    Lol-thank you!! I'm not worried though. Seeing how easy it was to remove a bunch of sand without it hurting my tank at all, I'm going to continue removing it until all is gone. I just hate the fact that I'm seeing less and less spaghetti worms.

    Well after 4yrs running my jbj ato seems to have given up the ghost. Thus my alarm this morning of my return sucking air Amazing how certain noises will wake you from a dead sleep.
    Manual topping off time. At least for a while.

    You know, I'm not usually one to suggest crap that doesn't have any real proof behind it, but you have been battling this so long... Have you thought about the micobubbles thing? I'm generally not convinced its really doing anything since all the evidence is anecdotal, but I haven't heard of harm coming from it (yet?)

    I tried this for just 48hrs during the ChemiClean treatment. More as an oxygenator than anything though.
    I'm not going to work anymore on curing it. Just removing the SB. I'm sick of this battle. My only concern is will the new substrate become infected as well?

    I know you don't like bare bottom, but once the old sand is out, I might let it go for a few weeks, see what happens before adding the new.

    Been busy with sisters recovery. 3wks ago she was flown to Milwaukee WI for open heart surgery. Today she's almost back to her normal self-lucky me! Lol It's been a harrowing 5 months to say the least. However we had some great support from friends, family and strangers alike whom we will be forever grateful to.

    Tank wise I'm still struggling with this brown crap. It's gone from a dusty looking to now slimy looking. I'll just continue removing all sand until it's gone.
    I fear that something is amiss with the chemistry in some way. I have days where even the glass is dusky making the water look cloudy. I'd give anything to know what's causing this.
    Otherwise all is well. Corals growing great, fish healthy. Fancy Brittle Star still alive, I target feed it 2-3x a week.
    That is all

    It's like 3:51am and I've been restless all freaking day. Now insomnia has reared it's ugliness.
    In the past 6 months my tank has taken a back seat in my life. First time any tank of mine has been put there. Financially it's been a struggle, of course this is when things begin to break, stop working or are needed.
    Too I haven't had the emotional energy to put the effort into proper husbandry.
    Today I noticed that most of the Coralline that covered the back wall has disappeared. I mean the tanks right in front of me every day and I just noticed this?!
    My fuge area looks the amazon jungle. I can't even see the baffles! Thick with algae they are.
    My ATO died. Then today my mixing pump burned out, leaving me to dump out 5g's of new mix. I had to remove the wp10 from the DT to use to mix which is totally inefficient.
    Still this brown slimy stuff persists. My last WC was on the 24th of last month. I don't even remember the last time I tested any parameters.
    Now I'm getting angry at myself just writing this!

    Crazy thing is.....all corals are thriving! Lol
