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.

Probably not, eventually you could try not using it at all and just save it for a rainy day. I ran one for three years 24/7 without issue, but probably not necessary. It's good to have also if you...

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!

If you get into aquascaping and planting the bottom it gets old really fast with a tall tank. The human arm is only so long and even with the use of extension tools it's really not fun.

Don't disagree of course with much you have said, but without enough plant mass wouldn't increase co2 without organic removal simply be more food for algae :biggrin:

Thanks for explaining that. I always thought it just got flattened between other boxes, rough handling, etc. So it's almost like a juicer for plants:biggrin:
