Comments In May 2013 the powerhead failed and bba algae appeared, decreased light from 14hrs/day to 6. Took out the plants in pots and washed in H2O2 and replaced soil in pots. Separated the small vals and trimmed the long then replanted back into pots. Cryptos looking better, java moss almost completely cleared up. Unpotted plants still struggling.
