Conduct 20 gal. **56K warning**

Well right now my 20 gallon just got planted 2 days ago. I took some clippings from my 46gal bow front which is having major problems with algea growing eveywhere. Soon to be stripped and cleaned good though. The plants in the 20 are taking off like lighting with only 2X18watt bulbs. I plan on changing the gravel next week to Shultz Clay Conditioner, which I have always had good luck with just finding it around town is the trick.

Ok so I get first post. I am surprised no one has responded to your post. So I will give you some attention.

Well first thing is first, your post leaves out alot of info. I see alot of tanks so your 46 gallon I do not recall. But are you dosing right? Your plants look so grungy. So with that in mind, could you post some specs and maybe collectivly figure what is happening?

Second I think your plants would get more attention if you changed out that background to a soild color. It is too distracting for the eye.

I found that steel wool will take off all that algae on the driftwood, you can get it at wal-mart for under $2.

As a fan of angels you sure do have a pretty one!
