haha thanks monkey, and for your other post too about the paintball/pressurized set ups. gonna be checking it all out this week and hopefully have something up and running by this weekend.
until that's sorted though, some of my plants now have hair string algae, presumably due to high light and 0 co2
; should I just give them a 3 day black out? the light is approx 3w per gallon (30 litre tank). I'm worried though as I don't want that kill off my high light requiring plants.
