Here are a few pics of my tanks....

The 10 gallon with 1 Scarlet Badis, 15 ! Rasboras (aka Sparrow Rasboras), and 9 Salt and Pepper Cory.





Now here is the Puffer tank.



The stems in this tank are going good!





The dwarf Sagittaria is getting a lil taller.



I did move my spray bar to the very top so it moves the surface. I haven't taken out the Frogbit yet as it seems to be doing ok at the moment . The scum is there for the time being. I did go 2 weeks without fertilizing and I don't have any algae in this tank thus far. So today I added some and will see how it does once a week with fertilizer.
Here is the Frogbit one side of the tank due to the current.


The other side closest to the spraybar...

I just realized I said the scum is there. I meant to say it wasn't there. Its been gone for about 2 weeks now.

Here a question if someone cares to take a stab at it.

What happens if you put too many root tabs in the substrate?? The reason I ask is I noticed I had about 6 in that tank before I tore it apart and re-did it. I was wondering if that's where some of my problems were coming from. I didn't realize I had soo many in there! I am wondering if that was what was causing my aglae problem ok the glass near the substrate??

Yay!! So glad the scum is gone!!

Um, I would imagine too many root tabs could leak nutrients into the water and give you the algae problem. I've never had experience with it myself but it sounds logical.
