hey guys sorry its taken me a while to come back to you all things have been crazy hectic here!! Right so this is where we are at unfortunately (whilst in the helipad ( hospital) it was as i had feared it was cyno it went that thick purply stringy red that shifted as i blew it with a baster i have since customed the skimmer where by i can have it gushing with bubbles and flowing into cup without spilling as i drilled bottom of cup and attached drainage airline with a stopper on the end have only done that this afternoon so its just a waiting game now!
Tomorrow (strength permitting) i plan on doing a water change too bearing in mind this is only a wee 90 litre tank! if this was you would you go for a 50% water change? or more? or less? plans to add a sump to the system are in place but still off the road so have no way or getting to the glass merchants to collect glass.
in regards to coral and fish all seem to be great just the same its just that unsightly cyno GACK
will await further advise from you all
Hope i can get rid of this without any use of chemicals
Gus & Sam
