Thanks, as you can see I am having a little algae problem on some of the gravel and rocks. I added about 25 amanos and 30+ cherries. Hopefully it will help.

Mama-mia! That looks really beautiful.Everything is really filling in. I bellieve the thing hanging on your tank to the left is your UV-sterilizer? To get a more beautiful shot of the tank,you may want to consider moving it to the side,away from view. other than that,i really love the layout of the tank,makes me want to rescape mine real soon.

Thanks, that is a UV filter. Its just on there temporarily. I don't want to give green water a chance. I am just too lazy to remove it to take a picture. It will come down soon though.

Wow, that sounds like a lot of light, but I suppose it depends how high one has it too. No wonder that HC is cruising. Thanks.

the light is a good 6-8 inches off the tank. But you are right it is a lot of light.

Its a mix of GE 6500 starcoat and coralife 10,000k NO bulbs. The NO bulbs seem just as bright.

Wow, I can't believe how much your HC has grown in a month. Have you had trouble with algae yet? Anyways, great tank.

You were probably asked this many times, but what camera are you using? What lens?

I've had a bit of an algae problem. Looks like BGA, but I don't think it is. Nitrates were never low, maracyn did not help. It looks like I may finally be beating it though.
