Hello all!

You can start by not running your lights as long, probably best to cut back to 6hrs. Then I would suggest buying excel or making yourself your own batch with glut. Glutaraldehyde the active...

To start off I believe you should think about a couple things before moving forward. Bala sharks full grown max out at 16" which is HUGE. They need at least four others to maintain a small group but...

I signed up for AquaticPlantCentral and it's definitely not at the same caliber of TPT. Very slow.

Not sure what mopani was trying to say but I need an answer fast as my tank is quickly turning into an algae fest.

Would a 4 bulb T8 shop light work? Would this be too much light?
