The part of the tank shown in the photo is under the 2' light and it was turned off.
I like subdued lighting, so I only have all the lights on a few hours a day for the plants or when I'm performing maintenance. It's virtually a tank of plecos and kuhlis so they appreciate the subdued lighting too

Did you upgrade to or from a 20g? I hope not the former because otherwise you've wasted your money. The only fish in your stock that's suitable for a 20g is the Cory. And he needs friends. (So does the clown )
It will take no time at all for the water to foul with that stock in a 20g. You'll need to be religious about your water changes and test frequently. Daily to begin with- both testing and water changing.
