Hi all,

Off to cold NJ for 5 days... brrrrr...but seeing family will warm me up.

So am doing the following while away for the fishies and plants:

1. Large 70-80% WC tonight. Did the same just this past Sunday as weekly maintenance.
2. Lower light duration from 9 hrs to 5 or 6 max. Already raised as high as can be.
3. Slightly lower c02 bubble rate just in case. I know where it is now, so a little algae will be a smaller price than lost fish. Easy to put back to where it was.
4. Dose a half weeks worth of EI after tonights WC.
5. Canister cartridge changed two weeks ago, so no issues there.

Person coming will only care for my cats and was totally intimidated by the 180. Took one look and said 'I don't have to touch THAT, do I?' lol

I will have a buddy drop by once or twice to feed.

Keep a good thought for my guys while I am away!

I need to hook up some live webcams and a URL so I can check (spy) on the tank and the cats while I am gone.... Need to research that one lol

Enjoy the vacation. Give us a link to the webcam so we can watch your fish for you ;)

You should set aside some ferts for the guy feeding the fish as well; easy enough to leave instructions to just dump the cup in.

I have done this before, too check on my tank while I was on vacation for a couple weeks.

I setup my laptop with its webcam on the tank, I also setup RDP so I could log into my computer from anywhere. It worked great, I have a RDP client on my phone so I could check it whenever I wanted.
