    I just did my first 5 gal water change on my 55 and had a big ball of grape culpera. I did the change then went to my bedroom to look a my 30, I was gone for maybe 5 min I go back to the dinning room and bam my water was all yellow and the culpera turned white. What in the heck happened? I took the rock the macro was on and tore it off and threw it away. Has anyone had this happen to them?

    I heard they go a sexual and turn the water green, but this stuff looks like it died within a couple of minutes. Before it was kinda stiff and didnt move much in the current now it was waving everywere and looked white.

    Wait sorry I got confused. I just woke up and my wife just left to the hospital because she was having pains and I'm waiting for a call. Anyway I did the water change to the 30 and put a half gal of old water in the 55 from the 30 because I wanted to bring the saltl evel up and this happened(I did the change to the 55 last night). Could it be from chemical warfare in my 30? I have no idea.
