    i probably have the worst tank right now that you have ever seen. It is full of algea of all kinds, cyano, everything. Cant even see in the tank. However it has nothing living in it either.........just kind of let it go and havent taken it down

    Doesn't count! :)

    I have one of those too, I am letting evaporation finish emptying that tank. Sitting outside too, it is definitely ugly.

    Yeah, officially holding off on the wc this week. Been fighting hard over the past month or so trying to get back on track but my cuc has suffered some serious losses and desperately needs reinforcements... I did take some close ups of the tank before i pulled out a bunch of it but i didn't take a fts (trust me, soon as i heard about this i went back and looked.) I'll see what i can get to grow in the next 6 days. maybe i should shut down my ATS too...

    OK... nothing like waiting till the last minute.

    Would just like to say thanks again to John for putting this on.... and sorry for those of you that actually have to look at my poor tank.

    No need to apologize I am sure everyone feels much better knowing that isn't their tank in the photo.
