    My RBTA split yesterday, when I came home late, I had the Bluer channel on, and say this

    I used a piece of ice and pulled it off the rock it was on and placed it in a small glass container with a small rock in my sump area.
    I hope it makes it, it's currency in a trade deal I have coming up for another light.
    A third light to match my other 2, right now, 1 is not as powerful on the PAR meter.

    could be adjusting. I hope he pulls thru. I would add some extra carbon to your tank. Nems can give off toxins when splitting. (I think) I will have to check.

    Thanks for the kind words all

    I recently added some new carbon as well Matt, the day before it split

    Wait, that must be the secret, I added a new small carbon pack,
    AND, I wore a different hat in the house.

    so the carbon with the hat= split! Brilliant!
