My 44g aquarium is beginning to grow it and I have fry hiding near the top so it's very hard to scoop it out I have to put it into a bucket, make sure there is no fry, and dump.
#2 Well, not really an issue, but I bought a Life-Glo 2, which is 20w for my 29g aquarium. I could not find the lumens on the packaging. It is 6700 K which I know is acceptable, but I am wondering if the lumens are strong enough. I'm guessing them are, but just want to make sure this light is acceptable. I couldn't find a regular life-glo.
Thanks guy! :)
i cant help you much on question #2 but number 1 is simple lol some people consider duckweed to be a pest because of its fast growth rate and the mess it makes,blocks out alot of light, plus it can clog your filter. The only way to remove it is to take all the bits one. May take awhile...especially if you want to save the fry...
