The tank:

the light led is incredible.... Explosive plant's growth. Zero algae.

Very nice build, I think led lighting is the perfect solution on nano tanks!

If you hit the alert button and ask there, they should move it for you. I've seen them use the alert button this way in the past.

Nice tank. Do you know what kind of moss you have?
