Hi all,

So today I decided to give my tank a deep clean and move some of my rock about.

And I'm extremely happy with the results although fish alittle worked up as a result I know they will settle.

The last picture is the before picture.

A firm tooth brush and elbows grease it had taken alittle effort.

Joy's of having high phosphate levels I'm fighting at the minute getting better but always going to be hard with the live stock I have. Plenty of water changes and a phosphate remover but have to change that out every 5 days at the minute hopefully settle soon.

Yeah vacuum what I could while doing it as did not want it in the filter socks and sump it's back again now  ut changed my lights and phosphates levels have now dropped still higher than I would like but getting there.

Only problem now is my skimmer has an electrical volt and it's that bad that I can feel it when I place my hane in the water so now running without one till I can source a temp one till I get paid next week. Hate not having one of the tank as i have a puffer and lion fish and they are messy eaters and produce alot of waiste.
