MABJ I'm super happy to hear yours are doing well too. When you get busy, you get busy.

How's that spec doing?

l8nite Glad to hear the soul is living on :-). My tanks are all doing relatively well with almost zero attention the past 6mo. Have some algae issues in most of them now, but nothing too serious.

MABJ This is still a dead tank, but I will just say its plants are living on well in other tanks of mine lol.

So are pieces of the scape. Can you find them in my Almost-Ada tank? ;D.

Thanks, max. Unfortunately the tank is a shell .

I cleaned it all out to simplify it.

It is a beamsworks 18" LED. the thread isn't closed, cause who knows when I'll start it back up!

maxwellag Your tank looks great! I just quickly skimmed through the thread and it looks very nice. What light is it that you are using? Is it an Odyssea?

If you're looking for a super cheap method, you could always use plastic wrap and just loop it around quite a few times until it is to your liking.

But yes L8nite answered this aptly.

This probably isn't the best thread for your question. Nonetheless, I think you have the right idea. You can buy some cheapo aluminum screen / mesh wire from the hardware store.

Alternatively, the transparent splash guard for the Finnex LED lights is just a thin piece of plastic. You could probably also buy tinted plastic with the same thickness/dimensions from Tap Plastics and replace the cover.

It'll grow and adjust to the environment I've given it.

In this tank, I NEED floaters to block light, as algae readily forms in the shallow water.

AutumnSky Thank you for the clarification on the dwl.

Also maybe trim the moss a little short to keep some good light.

Lately I have been toying with the light coming up from the bottom of the tank for better light at the substrate.

Using clearish bucket to store excess plants for almost 4 months giving them light from the top and also moving the aquarium light to the floor and shoot the light straight through the bottom. Have duckweed and Salvinia Minima on tops.

Maybe you could decoratively clamp and point a light from the lower area below the shelf it sits on directly UP into the moss or dim area to give it a little love?

Asked for some input from a few people on the submerge-able led lights maybe for below in the aquarium for hard to get to dark "covered" areas. No one seems to have done it. I have lots of Salvinia Minima and it blocks a lot of light! The moss doesn't need much light so even getting a little extra from a nearby light should help.

Hehe thanks. They got me into shrimping, so I'll always remember them.

Hopefully when this confusing tank gets a big switch up it'll still be beautiful!
