So a mid week update for a first due to big change. Have finally installed my christmas gift to self:



Detail shot:



So four T5HO vs two. Think I'm gonna have to crank up the CO2 to match. Not completely pleased with the look. Think the canapy needs to be lowered. Right now it's five inches above the tank so the versa tops still work. May sacrifice those and go with open top. Thinking closer to two inches above would look better. But then again not even sure I can handle the extra light as is. Still plan to make some louvered panels for the top. The increased amount of brightness is crazy. Mainly better coverage but under the back wood is still somewhat in shadow. The plants are lovin it.

WARNING: ** Pearler Alert **



And the blues in the platinum angels are definitely enhanced:



The camera/me can't capture the head and shoulder quinine patches or all the glitter. You can see some on the gill plate. And looking quite gravid here.

The canopy is steller. And that pearly, glittery angel. Such a beauty.

Thank you Dl. Appreciate it. Unfortunately one of my black angels does not look so good:



All but certain this originated from some roughtanking with her mates. Has had these same sore spots for weeks but smaller and without the fluffy cotton-like (fungus?) stuff. One of the platinums had similar but it never got this bad and healed on its own. During last water change one of the patches came off revealing an open sore with some of the fungussy stuff remaining on the edges. The next day the same happened to the other patch. Figured/hoped she was on the mend but now a couple days later they have fungused over again. Am at the point where I feel the need to medicate. But what to use?

Water parameters are all good and constant. Temp of this tank is 78F. The fish swims, eats, and fights back as normal.
