Yes I've got air running into the tank, back left side. This was when the tank was new and clean still. LOL

The algae looks very yellow or is that due to the light? I think you can dial down the volume of air by 50%. You just want enough to break the surface tension to keep the water from getting stale but also not cause a lot of water movement inside. I know in the wild, they deal with ocean waves but keeping it calm should help them feed easier.

I'd get rid of the egg crate, they could get stuck in it. They're not the greatest of swimmers that I've seen, they are lazy eaters. If anything just pick the least porous looking rocks.

Oh that air flow has gone way down since. It was more so for the initial setup of getting things all mixed up in the water with the Dr Tim's bacteria cycle stuff I was using. The algae was a greenish brown color overall. I also always use egg crate to prevent rocks from scratching or putting a pressure point on the glass and cracking it, since it's only a 10g that glass ain't that strong.

Take a look at this vid, you're seriously underestimating how strong the glass is.

I siphoned some of the larvae out to record their phase. It's a mix of 2 weeks to 1 day old.


Here's a shot of them while in the tank.
