Hey everyone, I have the fans, DC adapters, etc ready but the two things I don't have are the mounts for 80mm/120mm fans and a step down transformer. What mounts/transformers do you use/suggest I use?

You can try direct dosing H2O2 if you don't have access to the meds stated above. It works but not as well so you'll have to be more persistent with the treatment. :\

I can be easy and hard, depending on the species you plan on growing. You'll have to watch out for hair algae as well. They're annoying to get out of the macro algae ):<
