I didn't know there were so many high schoolers here. I'm 17!

I wasn't aware of the number of High Schoolers in MN! I'm 15. Cool to see people my age actually interested in the same things as me.

I have a hairlike, straight algae that goes with the flow of the water. It sometimes grows a few inches in a few hours. It grows on the glass, the rocks and everything else. I do need co2.

We should totally make a kid's club or something like that.

C02 is always good. Any updates?

Sorry for post-trim pic! Kiran should start it, seeing as he is probably the most knowledgeable of us.

I'd love to join the kids club if I were born 20 years later.

Surprised no one suggested you to get one of those intake filters yet.

I am starting to hate my tank. The slope is collapsing, I have bad algae, my DSM pretty much failed,y shrimp are dying, my plants won't stay down, and I have surface film.

Try increasing the water changes and lower your photoperiod to 5-6 hours for a few weeks. That's how I turn things around. It's boring but it works. Then slowly ramp up the light once things are under control and you begin to have a larger plant mass.

Thanks! I'm at school 8 hours a day, so I will need a timer. Which means I need 2, because I need one for my solenoid. I use a 23w 6500k CFL, ahould I raise it? It's about 6-8 inches from the surface.
