The tank looks great!

I have a 20 long with the same light fixture. What bulbs are you running? I am running a 6500K & 10,000K and it was algae galore in my tank when the hood was sitting on the tank. I now have the hood suspended 27" above the tank to keep the algae away

Thanks!
I use two 6500k bulbs that I got from the LA Shop. Currently fighting algae myself. I am working on using a shorter photoperiod and have noticed a bit less algae.

Default 3 Month Update

Up and running for 3 Months!!!

I have a new batch of shrimplets and growing shrimplets galore! I also have saddled Cherries and some prego Tigers, Cherries and CRS.

Still fighting algae but I think its improving. Growth is coming along and I am loving the Downoi! Due for a trim on the Bacopa and the Rotala. I also think the intensity of light is too much for the Hygro "Brown" the growth is lacking and the leaves have a dusting of algae. I may move it to another tank, but I would need to find a tall plant that adds some dark color to the back round plants. Any ideas?

On to the photos:

Default Update

I did a bit of a re-scape this week and removed / moved the rotala and added a field of Stuarogyne Repens in its place. So Far I am liking the feel of the Stuarogyne and think the Shrimpies like it too! The Downoi is still looking pretty good and I have at least five berried cherries. I think the tank is coming along. Let me know what you think!
