Can you light the bottom of the basket?

Like the bottom chamber of the media basket? Yeah, I can get light to it from the back of the tank since the glass isn't blacked out.

But algae will develop on that back pane and you'll have to be able to get to it to clean it pretty regularly.

Hmm, well where it would be wouldn't be hard to get to it, chances are a vertex aglea mag has enough clearance to be back there.

Think it would be beneficial enough to warrant having cheato in that bottom chamber of the basket? Or would it not be enough to make a difference?

I've never had much experience with these little tanks, but I'm guessing not much improvement in water quality would be seen from a baseball sized clump of chaeto. Just keep the bio load reasonable and skip the macro IMO. More maintenance than benefit.

That was my exact thought, I couldn't imagine much change from it.

Well I just tested again and have zero trites and ammo, so I'll call my lfs after class and see what they have.

My stocking plan so far:
Clown goby (yellow or citron)
2 x fire fish (finally a fully inclosed tank, they always jump on me)
Hectors goby (if I can find one local)

I love the green ones, but last time I talked to my lfs they said they never get them in. I tried to get them to special order and they acted like they couldn't :/ I love the yellows too though, so it'll be okay haha
