Please add me to the list.

I just got my Planted+ for my aqueon evolve8. It is MUCH brighter then the stock light, so I am a little worried about getting algae.

The tank is 12" tall and my substrate is 3" thick. I've reduced the photo period from 8hrs down to 6hrs. I was dosing Flourish comp. 1x per week, and Flourish excel 2x per week. No injected C02.

Can anyone recommend any adjustments I should be making in order to avoid algae?.

You can also use some kind of top for the tank. Depending on the opacity it will reduce the light.

Not the best shot, WC overdue but here's my shot at a planted tank.

Currently using a Planted+ & plan to add two more Finnex fixtures within the next two weeks.



50% wc, driftwood added, plants added.
