Haha yeah I thought kitchens were for fish food making and rodi units. The wp10 came in yesterday. Lets just say this lil thing is tiny compared to the wp40... Absolutely tiny. But nevertheless its in and running. Hopefully it'll help pull up and kill off the algae. Also hopefully got my controller fixed so that its automating the lights again (hopefully) was gonna redo all the wiring but I need to move the tank in a month or two for new carpeting😞

Boo carpet!
But, in reference to your algae issue I have a thought that might help you out. I have been watching some of melev's stuff on youtube and in one of his videos he discusses algae battles. Now, I'm not going to fully agree with him on the need for all the snails and such...I was interested in how easily it came out of his tank! How did he accomplish this? A product called phosphateRX. It murders down the phosphate levels which weakens the algae...he appears to like it better than GFO and such, but I'm not here to judge that bit but say it might be an option in your case to bring a FOWLR system down to 0. Check it out.

Gratz, and understandable. Hope all goes well. Get some sleep buddy.
Is aqua world a nice store? It's near my sisters and I'm in town for the marathon.

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter.

Glad the algae is getting better for you.
