Are these the pods mandarins eat?
Also my algae is disappearing but still growing back. Just a stage in the tanks life or problem?
Nitrates to me look 5 or less in person.

Can't remember if you are running a sump, but if so, get a small fan down there and open up the cabinet. This helped me a lot and I just have one cabinet door slightly propped open.

If you're not running a sump, you will be limited to a fan blowing on the DT or a chiller unfortunately.

Hope this helps!

A more permanent solution is to cut a hole in the door and cover it with mesh, speaker covers work well as mesh covers. Run a small fan inside and the mesh allows it to breath without keeping a door open.

If you are worried about appearance you could drill a hole in the side of the stand and cover it

Don't cut the stand, cut the door. You don't want to weaken the stand and doors and structural. Just be sure to get a cover before cutting the hole so you can cut the hole to match, also having a hole at both ends will help circulate better. With my stand it has a door at each end so one approximately 6 inch hole in each door would allow it to breath nicely.
