    I was so excited because it helps my fishies, who are loving playing in their floating water sprite btw, and me reduce water changes a bit and thereby reduce stress. Im definitely getting more plants. Looking for low lights right now as I only have an LED and indirect sunlight. I have java and lace fern, java moss, two crypts, and a Mr. JJ Moss, the mossball. Any suggestions on what I could add.

    Did water test yesterday on my 20g tank. ammonia 0. nitrites 0. nitrates 15. Seems my plants and my bacteria are doing marvelously.

    Hair algae can sometimes be cause by either-too high watts, light too close to the water, old light bulb-to name a few common causes-generally its a type of algae that needs manual removal on occasion since this is a closed system-but sometimes you can control it to a degree. I have used an old tooth brush and twisted/twirled it around the hair algae to remove.
