I've had 13 clown loaches for about 9-10 years, and the largest of the bunch is only about 5-6 inches long. I have them all in a 75 gallon that is heavily planted. I have never seen them burrow into...

Wow! Nice find!

Those will look great in any tank! I would, though, turn them so the red & blue logo doesn't show. :P

I wouldn't worry about ANY ambient light. Direct light is what you may want to be concerned about.

I have a 75g with 110 watts from 10:00 am 'til 8:30 pm (10.5 hours). I also have another bank of...

Well, MY loaches have already gone through the "OOPS! Too much CO2" thing once before. These loaches are about 8+ years old. I, too, once gassed them pretty good -- killed quite a few of the smaller...

That's the little known species "Albino Nocturna". :icon_roll heh heh

I don't know what it might be. I've never seen anything 'white-ish' in color like that in my tank.

I would, however, siphon...

My entire 75g tank, with everything working properly only uses about 110 kWh a month. For a TWO month period, it would only be 220 kWh for the ENTIRE setup!

That's with 2 Eheims, 300W heater, 220W...

Thumbs up I DON'T think my fish have problems with high CO2

There has been lots of discussion about monitoring CO2 levels by judging the behavior of the tank's inhabitants. That makes more sense than trying to calculate levels, measure this or that, etc. My...

Okay, I've had mine hooked up for about a month now. I'm controlling two separate light strips, two canister filters, heater, powerhead, and CO2 solenoid (also monitoring pH and temp).

Well, it doesn't look like it is branching, so it's not staghorn algae or blanket weed (cladophora).

Obviously, it's a filament/hair/strand algae of some sort.

It's pretty though!...

What about siamensis?

Yes, I DO realize the idea is to "get rid" of the BBA by altering chemistry, CO2, etc.; but, why hasn't anyone mentioned introducing a Siamese Algae Eater (true Siamensis) to the mix in the meantime?...

I'd go with something similar to #2, as well. I've seen some mixed reviews (mostly bad) about the powered reactor in #1; and, it's a pretty expensive part of the combo. The diffuser in #2 is a better...

Yea, set a powerhead in the sump, push CO2 into THAT powerhead, and have an output hose leading right to the return pump's intake. That'd really chop everything up. Then, the micro bubbles (if there...

The micro bubbles I'm referring to come from the return pump chopping them up just before re-entering the tank. Like I said, though, nothing technically wrong with that.

In your situation, I might...

Light and substrate specs look fine. I'm a litle concerned about the sump. Sumps are not 'normally' used in planted tanks because of CO2 outgassing, especially in your case where you have a "drip...

True, the WPG thing completely depends on the dimensions of the tank. Tall, Skinny, Wide, Narrow... The effective light getting to your plants depends on the design of your tank.

Hell, that's almost 3 watts per gallon! The light's good. And, I agree with "prjtc...(whatever)", 6500K is better (but not essential).

Give us some chemistry stats, if you're testing.:)
