I have two of these on my 40g long in an old T8 hood, and they really do put out some light. I have to keep my CO2 cranked to keep algae away. And they were pretty cheap too!

I just attached them...

Mine have survived both Algae Fix and fenben, but they do a wonderful job of keeping my glass clean and keeping my plant leaves clean of GSA, so they can stay :P

They have the API ones, I've actually never found strips there. We mostly just use them for our pond, since for the most part, the koi really don't care LOL. As long as things are stable for them,...

Also just to add, the molt I picked out of the tank looked like a complete shrimp too. AKA nearly perfect, almost beautiful. But what could be causing issues after the molt? What was weirder was the...

It's only about 4-5 months old though!!! I bought it in May! That would be insane if it already died on me, but I like to think that sponge acts as a pretty good prefilter. It seemed very clean when...

I had quite a bit of staghorn prior to pressurized CO2. I would personally start with just getting the amount of CO2 up. I'm currently setup with a 40 long with 2 54 watt T5HO bulbs, and I had to...

Yeah that's definitely true. It's just the cheap Aqueon 10 gal filter that came with the tank. I don't think purigen and/or AC would pick it all up. I'll definitely have to remember to take a poke at...
