I know you said you just added new plants, but anything else in the last month or so? Especially new substrate? I had horrible diatoms like yours and mine were caused by high silicates in the soil.

Who makes a 36cm/14in cube aquarium?

I have an Aquasky light for a mini-m but would like to try a cube instead. Does anyone sell a 14x14x14" cube? Even a 13x13x13" would work if I could find it.
