My single T5 light burnt out so instead of replacing bulb I bought a Beamswork LED and a cheap stand to raise and lower it as algae permits. Wow, I can visibly tell the light difference; now I actually have a light I'll have to put on a timer! 😮

Congratulations! That is nice, very exciting actually. Go slowly raising the light to the plants, gradually increasing the light exposure time, as you say this one is brighter, and maybe a couple hour break period in between photo periods during the day could help to not get algae issues.

~~~

Just did a continuous drain, flush of the canister filter and add back 15 full 5G buckets of water back in, 75G of fresh water into the 72G bowfront, though it isn't actually a 100% pwc doing it that way.

Changed water in the SW nano, added FW from evap in the SW cycling tank and 2 live rock stones from the smaller Macroaglae vase, but as I was doing the pwc on it, I realized teh Caulerpa was melting and causing a disasterous mess, I need help figuring out what to do about from the SW side experts.

I am really mad and sad about it because I had such an active pod population in there and I am afraid I just started it on its way to death!

Green Spotted Puffer will need a brackish water conversion as it ages towards adulthood. (Personally I am not too sure when that is, haven't done extensive reading on the subject)

Check this, in the vases after you scroll down a ways!!! Now you will have somethng fun to do with the moss.
