I would use the old sponge out of the filter lol, but I don't run a filter in the other tank. Just a powerhead and lots of plants. I don't think it's the newest stuff from ADA. I got this substrate about a year and a half ago, but just got to use it. It's a long story. But it's Amazonia II I believe.

This is the tank with the Coralife fixture over the top. Notice how much is on each side of the light. I just don't think the fixture is wide enough......

ASA II will still be leaching for some time... All the Amazonias leach forever!

If it's possible, maybe raise the fixture a bit for more spreading of the light.

I wish I could. I guess I could buy the hanging hardware, I was just scared that would give me even less light considering the depth of the tank now......
