Some random photos of the tanks and my new 1 gallon red cherry shrimp tank! (it's cycling) the heater from the picture is an aqueon. Quick question: the biocube Is full of corral one algae on the back. Obviously it's dead but when I start the tank with it come back and spread?

No, the new algae will just grow over the dead algae.

I though the question was about the Coraline algae on the back of the tank. It doesn't regenerate.

I'll be doing something called the welstad method. You plant it thickly and the plants add a natural filtration for the shrimp. All you have to do is a pwc every few months. It's like a closed ecosystem. I've never done it before but it sounds really cool.

I would just be worried about algae because of the light but I have heard of that method. It sounds like it works. Good luck! Did you make a thread about it?
