Hello Guy and welcome to the forum

Beautiful tanks you got there and it sounds to me like you're already realizing the mistakes you made before things get out of control. So thumbs up to you.

Looking forward to your progress. Good luck.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
