I wasn't going to pitch it into the trash, anyway. Maybe you're right, and maybe as an alternative I just need to wait a little until my Water Sprite comes back from the pruning I did on it. I'm concerned about the Nitrates having shown up, though. Last time I tested them (last Saturday) they were 10 ppm and probably rising. I think the plants are not performing as well as they did. Of course there's the matter of introducing 2, then 4 Pristella Tetras... I guess it takes a little time. So I guess the wood gets some weeks' reprieve. Everyone has good arguments. Thanks.
