I've always looked at the substrate as a safety need. You don't necessarily need it full of nutrients, but it prevents you running short of something in the water column. Especially something like...

This was never about me disagreeing with you about the whole flash/ambient light thing it was about what I saw int the OPs pics. The flash obviously wasn't the only light hitting the subject. ...

Pretty much what I'm saying or increase shutter speed if possible by adding more light. The OPs pics aren't sharp in addition to the the noise. I'm well away of the ability for flash to freeze...

I'm very impressed by your picture taking skills. That's what you turned this into, but you really haven't looked at the OPs pictures and can't admit that you might be incorrect so I'm done.

He's a new guy holding a larger lens. It's not the shrimp it's the physical size of the lens. I'm talking camera shake not motion blur.

With a 100mm, especially a new user you need probably 1/250, 1/320 to get something 'sharp' or as you mentioned a tripod if the subject stops and goes.

I hear you on the OCF, but most of those pics aren't even close to sharp. The 100mm is a very sharp lens.

The 100mm is a very good lens but it's also a big lens and you probably need a faster shutter to eliminate camera shake to take tack sharp images handheld.

I've kept a school of them long-term in a 4-foot tank. I really don't think you have to worry about them getting to 5". You'll be fine in a 3-footer. They are very active and peaceful for there...

There really is nothing related to your 'short hair algae' problem and a UV. If it's dark in color then you probably have BBA. See BBA threads.

After hearing how good this was, I was a little disappointed after seeing it. I know it's only a movie, but some of the writing was so bad I couldn't get past it and it took me out of the movie.

It's 99%-100% the UV. The water takes on a clarity that you will pretty much never see without one. You have to really look to see the water. Glad it worked out for you and glad I could help!

Shouldn't really be a problem growing it on EC as long as what it needs is in the water column.
