40 breeder is very nice, except you'll probably need a 4 bulb T5 fixture to light it effectively. You could do a nice noon burst, but I would only run the front and back bulb for the majority of the...

Man that's about how I'm looking right now. You think it's really as simple as adding more circulation and O2? I've never had green water so I don't know anything about treating it. Also I'm just...

As with most things, it would benefit with the addition of ferts. But as long as you keep that co2 cranking you should have good results, as hc is a co2 hog. Honestly I would just go to the for sale...

Without Co2 stick with a T5NO. Coralife makes a good one and you can usually find them cheap because I think they are discontinued. I'd Go with the 30" 2x18 watt strip.
