Definitely do the drip acclimation and QT, otherwise you might have problems.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Is QT necessary when they are the first inhabitants?

Thanks. I guess I originally only had diatoms. I now have slimy sheets of brown algae that has air bubbles in it. It's over 15%-20% of my substrate. What can I do to fix this?? It just started to happen. My water tests show up fine. It's getting much worse.

I can't take pictures because I don't have a memory card
