How much water flow do you have?
I just put in a aqua clear 402 powerhead in tonight. The flow is way better then before. The temp problem is fixed and stays at 78 to 79 degrees. I have a PH, Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate and Calcium. The only one I think we haven't done is Carbonate hardness, all the test came out fine. I don't know a lot about the lighting fixture but its called smatlight. I think it has 2 bulbs the tank is pretty bright when the light is on. Is there anything else you guys need? I did move a few rocks tonight to help with water flow. I almost think that my brother has tom much rock in there lol. I did put some janitors 4 crabs and 1 snail. I am just worried about the regular maintenance I need to do. Should I change out some of the water every few weeks? Also I am running out of room in the back of the tank. I want to add a skimmer but what about the cover? If I add a skimmer I will not have room for the top, I really don't now I have to modify the one I have now. Anyways you guys have been a huge help and I am really happy I was able to find this site :)
