If the plants are growing well, the algae isn't, and you like what you see, what more could you ask?

Thanks Hoppy- You have helped me out so much and I am grateful... Yes beleive it or not the tank is a success,,, in the future the carbo plus will be out of here-right now I have a clip on fan blowing across the surface to cool it down . temps at 82 , but also creates enough surface aggitation to lose co2, oh well a constant battle. Thanks again, Maybe in the future when I can afford the jump to co2 I will let you know and maybe you can steer me in the right direction.
