Getting ram eggs off wood

Is this even possible? My GBR laid on a HUGE piece of wood in my tank and lifting the whole thing would be a huge pain. Previously they laid on a rock and I moved that NP to raise the fry.

My experience is that they can build up tolerance to excel, but you need to start them slow and let them establish, which is why I suggest 1/2 dose for a while. Once they hit the top of the tank...

Clip on LED moonlight for 40B?

Anyone have suggestions for a clip on LED moonlight for a 40B? It can be really dim I just want to be able to barely see in the dark. Needs to be dim enough I can fall asleep next to it too.

My ray 2 on my 40B has pretty good coverage I would say. You can tell less light is hitting the top 4 inches or so at the back of the tank if you look for it though. Really given that the tank is...

Plants need N P and K. You say your P is 0. There you go.

How well is the Aquaclear working with it dead centered like that? I always had to shift mine over towards the left or right or else the side opposite the intake never had its debris get sucked up.

Move the upright rock so it is not in the dead middle of the tank. Having your focal point perfectly centered like that really kills the illusion of a nature scene. Move it to a more golden...
