Impressive record. I, too, had my stellata shot to 3 inches in one day once. Since then, I've been eager to get rid of it as it's becoming a nuisance. But you know I have my heart set on making portions of my tank shaded so I'll just move it in the corner(it's in the middle) as it's shading out the middle(bad idea apparently).

You now literally can not tell that there is water in the tank (other than the happy, swimming fishies)! If you don't have one of these, get one!
HOLY CRAP!!! That's some massive GW! I take it you have it inline with your canister filter. Keep in mind, this will reduce the output flow of the filter. If you use any fertilizers, especially iron, it's best to turn off the UV for a day or 2 when dosing with iron. The UV is suppose to nuetralize, break-off, (can't think of the proper word) with iron, so it's useless to your plants.
