Just fueled up the hedge trimmer and did the edges of my lawn. When I finished, looked back and a trail of petrol was everywhere!!! The cap wasnt on properly and fuel leaked out, the worse thing is some ended up in one of the FT's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I dont know how much but I can see the oily residue on top and it smells like petrol!!!!


OH MY GOD!!!

Can you get the fish out into another tank.... then dump the water... and triple rinse the tank??

I'd definitely stop pumping it through the grow beds... immediately...
