Not sure what mopani was trying to say but I need an answer fast as my tank is quickly turning into an algae fest.

Would a 4 bulb T8 shop light work? Would this be too much light?

I have two 300w heaters in my 75 gallon. My basement gets really cold in the winter, we don't have it heated. Overkill? yeah. Just make sure you get some quality heaters. No tetra/petco special junk.

Yeah, looks to be the wild type of the RCS or to me personally looks to be a Malaya shrimp. However they are native to Malaysia not South America. Cool shrimp!
