What's your tank setup (including age, light, etc) and water parameters?

36 gallon tank is less than six months but I transferred from a 20 and kept gravel and filter so technically around 2 years if you count that. Parameters
Nitrate 10-20
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
And I have a full spectrum daylight usually do around 12 hours of light no timer so I just turn of at night.

Some otos would be in heaven in that tank. That was an easy solution for my algae problems...

I have 4 oto's in my tank and they go no where near it, my Rainbow cichlid seems to eat occasionally though.

Amano shrimp! My tank used to be COVED in algae. 5 amano shrimp and it was gone in less than 3 days. They are magic!
