Very Nice!!!!! How do you like the FloraBase?
Sorry I have not tested for water hardness. I got the rocks from a big aquarium chain store.Looks nice Just a thought but have you checked the water hardness? I know that some rocks I've added from outside in the past have increased the hardness of the tanks I put them in noticeably.
you are using?Up-Aqua 27W PC Light Fixture (8000K)
Looks cool! I tried googling the light and came up with this thread twice and that was all that returned from google.
Don't worry too much about algae...I have 18w pc over a 2.5g and can't get algae to grow more less worrying about it and have 4x9w over my 5.5g.
You posted when I posted.....I would probably raise the water level a bit more to keep the HOB from splashing the water surface too much.
