    Yeah torch, fire fire!! lol The rocks were out of the water for 5 mins at the most. Yeah club soda lol. It worked and I rinsed the rock in a bucket and back in the tank. Everything tested great. Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10, Ph 8.2, Phosphate between 1-5 working on that. KH 8, Calcium 500, Salinity 1.025. Smile

    So.... I decided to get a Yellow watchman goby. Smile

    I have an African Flameback Angel and at least 1 peppermint shrimp if you're interested in those. Only catch is I can't catch them till I do my tank swap.
