I think the algae onslaught is over. There may be a piece or two but I haven't been able to find any algae that looks like it's on the way to taking over the world, so I think its over.

I know I should have stayed with the same photoperiod but I went up to 8 hours. We'll see if it's ok.

The solutions: I reduced my Seachem Flourish Comprehensive and this Jave Moss literally came up from under the gravel. It's all over now. Occurs to me that I should share a pic, so I'll do that tonight. One more thing or so - I have a glass top and I put plastic wrap over it to see if it reduces the light intensity, and I did plenty of 50% water changes. It really looks very good.

Thanks for the help,
Steven
