I really like the red algae and hope it gets bigger. So far it's a slow grower.

I keep my tanks at about 1.012, but with evaporation it can go as high as 1.014, but rarely.

Think I should say that measuring specific gravity with a cheap hydrometer (like I do) can't be altogether accurate. But I shoot for 1.012 using room temperature distilled water when I do water changes.
