I have two 15 watt cf bulbs in the hood. The bga algae is pretty much gone as far as I can tell, but I wish I could grow a different algae so my snails could have more to eat! I also bought a zoomed 501 off h4n on here so that should help with overall water movement in the tank.
Right now caspians fins keep getting torn from something in the tank, I have previously sanded down his log (which he loves and uses all the time), I also just glued some mini pellia to his leaf to cover up the edges of it, and I have a ton of java moss and some x-mas moss so I plan to cover the inside of his driftwood arch in them to make it fin proof too. And I was thinking it could be the water flow too doing it to him s hopefully the zoomed should help there too!
