Re: Changed from fancies to tropical, advice needed please.
Ok, I was peed off, I apologise for my attitude.
Not had a great day as days go, cocked up fish, new neighbours cat has left 7 lots of *$!* as a welcome home present in the front garden and my daughter had just arrived home with dog mess on her shoe (why don't lazy swines pick it up I don't know), calmed down a bit now.
I had cleaned the filter before we went on holiday, had a look earlier and there wasn't much in there, so most of the mess must have been in the gravel, I still gave it a rinse but used treated tap water..............
I usually rinse in dirty water but as I had done the water change and added salt I used treated fresh (Seachem Prime) to clean it.
I do have a heater in there, it is set at 76 degrees.
