Okay I have covered all sides of the tank with blankets, leaving only the top of the tank open to light. There is 0 sunlight in the room, and im going to try and keep the room lights off as much as possible. I dose with excel but I am also going to hold of on that for awhile and see how things go.

Sound like a plan?

Also, my lighting seems to be the problem here. Everything else seems in check. I dont want to spend much money on changing out the lighting system. So what I have now is

4 48" t10 bulbs over the tank
2 were labeled as being used for aquarium use
2 are daylight bulbs.

The light fixtures basically have to rest on top of the tank, as my landlord does not allow us to drill things into the roof. I have considered building a hood, but the tank is a bowfront and I dont have allot of spare time to build one. So how can I work around this?
