    Water is now circulating again :)

    Will change rowa, do a water change and put the uv back on after work. Since I've had no po4 removal for 4 days algae has taken hold of the sand and some rock.

    What was the condition of the magnetic shaft? Any scoring? Iv known dove snails get in and block the impeller too but im guessing you gave it a good clean out with a bottle brush or the like

    Yeah it felt fine. There was a lot of those hard tube worms on the outside? Maybe a few got in? Didn't see any tho

    not really the worms are soft bodied and wouldn't be an issue.
