The Tetra tanks are a bit worse, from what I've seen at PetCo. Many of the 40 breeders weren't even close to square at any...

please remember, the tank qualities are awful. Be picky, and check all the seams. I've seen some tanks with one side 1/4" inward. don't be afraid to ask a petco associate to dig out a tank.

High lights may be your issue. If the plant doesn't have to reach for the lighting it needs, it won't.

I think the wood strip along with the metal is fairly modern in design. If anything, I'd say build a new, more modern, stand for it and leave the tank itself alone

Exact percentage of intensity is not something anyone can tell you.

Start low or start high. Keep an eye on plant growth and algae growth and change intensity as needed.

Been wondering what this plant was. It was barely holding on before I redid my 125g, now it's my best grower.
