yeah, not really, only 22 large fish the rest are small. but there is a 300gph wet/dry, 300gph eheim pro 3 2080 and a magnum 350 not to mention heavily planted.

that and having media choice rather then prepackaged. I use those things as a reference point thats about it.

Ill check on the algae, ive had tons of different kinds.

That's not a planted tank. That's a jungle with glass around it- MFDROOKIE Circa 2011

You didn't Mandy, and I didn't mean to imply that - it just made the math easier. However, what I was referencing was this:

If you do three 1g water changes each week, you could improve water quality by doing one 3g water change. That's all I meant.
Fish keeping is a hobby that has at least as many questions as answers.

Good luck! I hope the pet store does take them.
I called them Sunday and they said they would take them as long as their adoption tank was empty at the time. I think I'm gonna give up my plecos, too. My son isn't happy about that either. Maybe I'll get some otos. I know I need some top dwellers. (And more lighting, and more plants, and more ferts....It never ends.)

Labor of love.

Fish are people, too!
My tank is clean but my house is dirty.
