Thanks, Karackle. I'm in a bit of a push because I'll be moving my tanks to my house in a month or so. So by the time I get my 75g all set up, it'll be time to move it. So while it may seem a waste of time to put so much work into my 75 just before moving it, I think the work will serve as a learning experience so I can a better job after its moved.

So for now, the poor 2.5g just keeps growing riccia like a mountain and is being overtaken by algae. I have ferts on the way for my 75, and I'm hoping I can use a little of them for this small tank. Mix that with excel, and maybe I can get the tank back on track. If I can get a handle on the algae, then I can do a rescape on it. I'd like to make my current "pathway" in the middle that can't be seen at all into a rock ledge, like a retainer wall. I think that would make for a really nice design, adding texture and depth. Then the RCS can take over!
