another algae question
why does it appear that most of the algae growth in my tank is directly under my filter (marineland emperor 400)?

perhaps there is less circulation directly under your filter?

timwag2001 03-15-2009 05:44 PM

no. i definately dont think that. if anything the other side of my tank lacks circulation

I have an Emperor 400 and there is a dead spot right under the filter. The flow is directed out away from the filter causing an updraw that also moves away from the glass. almost like the vacuum that draws dirt to the back windows of SUVs.
