    I started a 1.6g nano tank back in February with subpar LED lighting that came with the kit. After it cycled I upgraded to a proper LED light on a 12/12 schedule and dosed 0.1 mL of Flourish to try and get some horizontal growth for the dwarf baby tears I have planted. Within about 3 days there...

    I went on vacation last week and my friend stayed at my house to feed the cats and my fish. Anyway, I thought it was common sense to turn a tank light off at night, but anyway I got home and I almost gagged when I looked at the tank. The front glass is COVERED in green hair algae. She didn't...
