    Default Bad News

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry about the long delay on an update on what was going on with my tank.

    The tank crashed completely I was trying to save what i had left with no luck. Thats why the lack of updates on this. I'm not too sure what happened yet but I had a bad algae outbreak so i'm assuming it may have been phosphates. Ill let everyone know if I figure out what happened with it as im trying to get the tank running again.

    Garrett
