Why didn't you peel off the protective film off the acrylic? Once that flim gets wet, it's not going to be easy to remove.
Bulbs rated for 3500k, I just left the plastic film on to block some light but I might just spray it black or white. The plastic film is easy to remove even when wet, paper on other hand it has to be a new piece of acrylic and it won't matter an old piece and your gonna be there for a bit peelin.

The first is the pic if the mold on the side of tank where the water n glass meet.
The others are of the setup, funny thing after I let some air in there or more anyway
It seems as though the mold died down a lot. Should I still do a water change?

Ok I just started a new tank and I made a light canopy all that is is a box with no top/bottom it's the exact size of the tank so it fits kinda tight I wanna say air tight I guess but anyway I got 2 26w 3500k ea on a 15-20 gallon deep tank and it was on today for the first time an now I have mold spores on top the water the only plant I have is Rotala about 5 stems. What did I do wrong and will a 50-100% water change to get rid of it?
