Doing a light experiment
So I bought a dozen ottos yesterday for my low tech 55gal because they're just so cute.
They join amano shrimp, cherry shrimp, and 3 nerite snails in there as a cleaning crew... so I'm a bit worried that I actually won't grow enough algae. That being said, I took the screen off my light last night, and am now running med-high light over the tank.
It's low tech - no water column dosing and no CO2, so we'll see how it goes. My hope is to grow enough algae to keep everyone fed, but not enough to take over the tank. I can always reduce the light again if that algae starts going crazy.
