Well, barely 2 days into an increased light schedule (and not by much) I already notice algae responding. So I'm knocking off 30 minutes on either end to return to a 4-2-4 (with the 30 minute offset). The plants have been slow, but probably just because the lights are low for this depth of a tank. Anyway, it was clean and healthy looking so I'm just going to stick with the 4-2-4. Melinda and the kids will be tank-sitting for me while I head out for a little trip and hopefully the new algae is gone when I return.

And then I'll be contacting Michael about a couple pleco...

Good to know you caught the algae response before it got out of hand. Maybe a gradual increase of 15 minute intervals, as plants grow.

Anyway, I’m excited for you about the bristle nose. Those are probably my favorite fish at the moment.
