    OK, since there is only one entrant in this comp I'll enter. Lol more chance of winning:lol:.

    My problem was cyano bacteria, it was everywhere, on the substrate, rocks and even on my conchs shell!

    I solved this problem by increasing the flow, adding carbon and phosgaurd and a 24 hour lights off period:m106:. I also siphoned it out while doing water changes. (water changes also help). Also feed less, when I started out I thought that I had to feed alot because my fish will go hungry. This is not the case, he is getting fatter and I'm not even feeding him that much anymore.

    So no redslime remover or any chemical product.:thumbup:. Just shows that with good husbandry it will go away. :m109:

    Pics to follow.
