Thanks for the quick response Crister!
That's exactly what I thought myself. I was calling around last night to find where I can buy a clip (all LFS
are obviously closed) and was lucky to find that petsmart was open to 10pm during holidays. I called and the mgr said they have them, got there to find out they were out of stock! I complained a bit and until the girl went in the back and gave me one of their Algae clips for free.
I was pretty surprised and thankful.
Got home and put the additional clip on the other side. Both had algae sheets but it unfortunately still kept happening. Dory would go to one side and here comes the rabbitfish. She would go to the other and same.....
I was hoping that would help as well. Maybe it will in the days to come. If it doesn't....the rabbitfish is outtie!
Lastly...I have Halides and t5's and as I'm sure you know, it takes a while for the mh
bulbs to brighten up. Would your method still work with that scenario?
