    Are you running the stock bulbs in the light fixture?

    I am not adding Co2, but I am adding Flourish Excel as well as the entire line of Flourish products. For the bulbs I kept the 10,000K that is in there, but instead of the 420nm bulb I got a 6700K bulb.

    With the 6700K bulb, are you having any algae problems? What kind of cuc do you have?

    Nice! One of these days I wouldn't mind doing a planted myself. I'd like to have a nice cypress knee, a bluegill, and some crawfish too. Put a little bit of home (Louisiana) in my house.;D
