Brewed the Haus Pale Ale on Thanksgiving day. The whole process went great and it is happily bubbling away. Starting OG was 1.049 and it smells great.

I don't see a blowoff. Looks like a pretty good head of krausen there. . . Are you looking to change the color scheme in your fermentation room?

Actually with the 6 gallon carboy the krausen never reached the the neck. It has since died down. I don't think I have to worry about a new color scheme. But it did cross my mind since it was a higher OG. But all is good.

I learned it by putting a carboy with an airlock in my friends closet (who was away on vacation). Whoops. A good dry cleaning bill later, I've learned that airlocks are only used to free up my blow off tubes when needed fore new fermentation starts.
