Oh, and very little algae, I was brushing it off the sides with an old toothbrush, but now I have an indefatigable army of algae eating youngster shrimp to do it for me. The anubias at one point also had a kind of brownish dust/muck on it, which I believe was determined to be diatoms. I think that the duckweed on top has really helped to suck excess nutrient out of the water and block the light from being SOOOO bright, but I'm sure plenty of floaters would pull the same trick. I just got what I believe to be water spangles as a tagalong with another plant order, so I'm gonna throw those on top of the bowl to see how they do.
