2 Month Tank Progress Video

Just a time lapse video of my tank over the course of 2 months after it's been set up, hoping to get some green algae by month 4-6, but with purple algae being more nutritious for my fish I don't mind if it stays lol .

Thanks, there's no trick, leave your lights on for 12-14 hours a day and have the right balance of NO3; so it is beneficial for the algae and not high enough to do significant harm to your fish. I also keep my water parameters in check (pH, KH, GH, ect) and maintenance my tank daily with weekly PWC to add minerals back into the tank.

If I've converted you over to cichlids, then my job is done LOL but jokes aside, should really get a tank for them
