I wonder what the cue is for algae to appear just for co2? The plants must send out some kind of trigger. Either that or ammonia fluctuations due to inefficient uptake.

Sure nice to have someone who knows what they're doing around.
If you guys were telling me for sure there was a problem from an oblique and partially obscured image, I'd be grumpy. Saying it looks iffy, which is really a question, is another thing.

I had someone point out a bird's nest in a light fixture once. Very grateful that we could prevent a fire! More eyes are good.

I thought it would be okay because we also left the lights off. I'm wondering now if the decreased light stressed the plants. Regardless, it's a mess. I'm really bummed out about it.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Hahaha very industrious vase. But it isn't a true orb until you have had to deal with the very questionable filter design. Honorary membership granted!
