there is some direct sunlight that hits the tank right after the lights go out. It's for about 40minutes at sundown. I hadn't thought about that but you may be on to something. I've had the tank in the same spot for over a year, but maybe due to the poor water conditions I was experiencing, the additional sunlight may be making the staghorn more prevalent. I'll keep an eye on it. thanks!!
