My latest update: some bad, some good. I have a few questions in this post that i could use some help with as well.
I fixed the background for my tank but i am not too pleased with it. I spray painted a piece of particle board and tried to cut it to size, but it isn't laying flush with the glass so there is a bit of a reflection...grrr. I like the texture that the wood offers but at the same time the black isn't as dark as I would like. I REALLLLY wish I had painted the tank before it was filled.
Here are some FTS:
Does anyone have any ideas on good black backgrounds?
You can see that my algae problem is very bad ATM...the plants are still recovering from the move, and the week of lights with no CO2 really did me in.
Should I stay the course? Just keep pulling it out and work on getting everything stable..or get more aggressive?
On a positive note, my plants are pearling consistently near the end of their photoperiod, so I believe the plants are certainly on the mend.
You can see the algae with tons of bubbles as well... I am assuming my algae is pearling as well..is this true?
