Based on the clean and algae free look of what it used to look like, my guess is its just a result of neglect! Good luck!
Well, what happened was it got infected with this brown algae, (not diatoms) sort of just like, brown debris, more and more every day, every time I'd vacuum it out, it would be back twice as much the next day.. I struggled for months and months, then finally just gave up and let it go.

I wasn't caused by neglect.. it caused the neglect

What do you think?

You know, I might even be selling this tank.. if you're interested let me know. I still haven't decided but if I do, it won't be expensive and it will come with the algae/black stuff LOL! It will come with the piece of wood and plants.
Let me know if you decide to sell it. I've been looking at the electric bill and want to convert some of my bigger tanks to an emersed set up or no artificial light at all.

Thanks! Yeah, that was the idea.. It kind of helps a lot with the dimension too. Makes it actually look bigger than it is... When you have multiple levels, it can look more natural imho. I really love this tank, it just needs a new carpet of something. I liked the way the HC carpet looked the best, back in the beginning. Maybe I should get some again. I've been really wanting to try UG in there for a while.. Anyone on here have some they would be able to sell/RAOK to me?
