The Blackout is over, and a resounding SUCCESS!!! No signs of cyanobacteria anywhere!! All my fishes are alive and accounted for. All my plants look spectacular. Some even managed to have grown during the prolonged darkness. I kept it completely blacked out for a total of 72 hours. Then removed my garbage bags...lol..it was about 9p.m., and i left the lights off for another 15 hours till about noon. When i turned on the lights, i did a 50% water change. I don't know why i was worried. Also i noticed that in addition to the cyanobacteria being completely vanished, also some other algae was greatly reduced. Also i will have some pictures coming in the next 24 hours to post in the pictures and video forums. I feel the need to show-off my tank a little..lol..is that conceited?
