I like the dark background.

Thanks! It does bring it back to the plants and make them pop a bit more in colour. I tend to notice the glass needs a clean now! but I’m looking for it.

Hmmm, the GSA is still hanging around and also getting green algae on glass from the vertical blinds letting in light onto one corner of tank.

Bulbs are over 8 months old now but can’t see the point of replacing even if spectrum shift does happen as I know the new bulbs will be stronger and trigger algae.

Thinking of adding some floating plants which would help the betta out as well. Maybe in a cutout lid plastic circle so they don’t get banged around by water flow.

Random thoughts - along with not trusting hoses to stay in tank when filling, watching the angelfish squabble when tank is filling near top can be crossed off bucket list...

Just get the ista brand garden hose clip from either Aquotix or Avid for $5 and you’ll never have to worry about the garden hose coming out of the tank.

Glued the CO2 diffuser together and seems to be holding well. Darn near glued me to the fish tank as well.

Thinking of swapping out some bulbs or just cutting back. The bolbitis is taking off again over the tank. Thinking of swapping to all pink bulbs. Still have LEDs in front to whiten up the look.
