The lights are fixed in the hood with reflectors the CO2 drop checker just starts to go yellow at end of running cycle it comes on 2 hours before lights and are on and goes off 1 hour before lights off. The drop checker remains green all through the night. The bubbles from diffuser are sucked up into the FX5 intake so I'm getting good CO2 saturation and PH drops over 1 point during that time.

All stock are fine with no signs of stress or gasping

This was the tank on the 1st of this month

And this is now 27 days later

As you can see the growth has been good
