Got a new water chemistry kit as my other one was getting a bit old and I wasn’t sure I could trust it. Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates all okay! Great!

This is the first test I’ve had that includes phosphate, and I find phosphate levels are super high! Oh no! Is this bad? I haven’t tested phosphate levels of the tap water so I’m not sure if this is a tank only problem or not.

I’ve read that it mostly encourages algae growth and isn’t harmful for the fish. Hopefully this isn’t too much of a problem as its my Oto tank and they eat all the algae! (Plus the water is clear and I’m not having algae problems SOOO….?)

Thoughts please!


White Lego Star Wars Helmets

White helmets, only because my camera didn’t like focusing on the dark ones. That just means dark helmets will come later.

I gotta say, I love how crisp and clear most of the printing is on these helmets. Good job, Lego!

Let me know which is your favorite! Mine’s the Tank Trooper!
