algae grower and plants?
I am thinking of setting up algae grower in my filtration set up. Will that take the nutrients away from the plants? I had a really bad algae problem before I shut it down to start over. But I had no plants in it before. Or should I go ahead and build one that will hand on the back of the tank and have it there if needed? Oh and it's a standard 55g, two 6500 t-8 bulbs, under gravel circulation and canister filter.
