Nice!!! Yeah ur tanks pretty clean mine is just a tad bit cloudy so I knew it had to be the filter needing a little extra help, all my test are great ammonia nitrite and nitrate so I knew it had to be that.

The longer your tanks are up it will just get better. I haven't had algae in or cloudiness in months on my discus tanks. Thanks. Just keep your water changes up and you'll be fine
