Wuttup kangy so far I have a 30 gallon skimmer and a 30 gallon biofilter in my 55, the skimmer isnt going nuts so I'm assuming it's not picking this stuff up. Plus since replacing biofilter I've yet to see a difference .the only other filters I have are in my freshwater tank and its only carbon filter..I know it's not sand cause I turned off all flow for hours with no clarity .I'm starting to. See it turn green so I covered the back to block sun and I'm saving up for a uv sterilizer,I'd rather find another solution seeing as iv been wasting money back and forth with wrong solutions....sorry for the ramble just trying to give as much info as possible .peace and thanks
Update. I've never heard back from the Tetra company about the light specs. Go figure. And they claim they return all messages within 24 hours. I've set the 3 gal up as a RCS tank only. I'm using the LED light, and I'm hopeful it will keep my low light plants. The only plant I have in there that does better with brighter light is a stem of something I can't remember the name of - Cambado? - something like that. :) If that does fine, then all should be good. I'll let you know. Have Pennywort stems floating, one Anachris, and frogbit and duckweed.
