My 20 gallon algae growing tank JOURNAL!!!!

So right now i'm growing snails in my tank.



Shoutoutz 2 Cah925 for the loaner logs. lol.

Setup:
1 20W ikea lamp sittin sideways.
2 bags of flourite black.
20 gal some kinda tank.
20 aquaclear filter.

Just wondering what you guys think. But I'm pretty sure i know what the answer is. Not a good idea if I wanted to make this tank rimless on the top huh? haha.

I'll keep this updated as much as I can, but please let me know what you guys think. Suggestions always welcomed.

There is nothing much to make any suggestions for now i think. Flourite is a good choice for substrate, 20watt for a 20 gallon may be deficient, log doesn't look so good (or maybe just the location). That's all i can say unless you seriosly mean to have a algae growing tank.

haha yeah, that 20 watt light is just there for kicks. I'm letting the tank cycle as I will be out of town for a couple of weeks. The wood is just there for cycling. I just threw them in and somehow it kinda made something. lol. Anyways thanks for ur comments and suggestion.
