Your tank is 33 gallons, not 29, just so you know.

Thanks to both of you for the encouraging posts. Algae has not been a problem since I got better at weekly water changes. There is now just a small, somewhat expected amount. Plants are growing but very slowly. They were not doing well until I changed out one of the bulbs to a 6700k and they seem to have stabilized... As in they are not dying. I may experiment with taking the 10kk bulb out and leaving only the 39watt 6700k for awhile and see if I get more growth. But otherwise maybe I will just leave both bulbs and try adding some Flourish Excel... Any thoughts on that?
Btw, where can I see a picture of your tanks?

I thought it was 29 because of the diagonal corners on each of the front sides of the tank?no?

Hey, can you look at the pic I posted and tell me what you think that plant in the middle is? It's the only live plant that I have had for awhile that has thrived. Not sure what it is but it is one hardly little sucker

I had the same tank ages ago. I thought mine was a 29 as well but it does work out to be 33 gallons.
