Default Looong time

Hey guys. I know I came to one meeting and that was pretty much it.
Well anyways. I'm leaving the freshwater hobby, mostly.
I plan on keeping a nano tank or..two. lol
I've just grown a lot of interest towards Saltwater reef.
Plus for some reason I'm waay more lucky with it.
Anywho, I would still like to make it to meeting. Hopefully here soon I'll finally have some free time.
I did post my stuff up for sale in the "For Sale" forum.
If anyone of you want any part of that stuff you get dibs. plus we can work out some type of deal.
I just want good homes for this stuff.
Anyways, I'll be around. Hopefully to more meeting. I still need to maintain these nanos I'll be doing.

Headed over to the dark side huh I've had that itch myself a few times but haven't scratched it yet. We'll be around when you decide to get back into the Plant side again.

Normally I wouldn't offer this advice to someone headed to the "dark side" but since you still plan on keeping nanos...dude you need more plants in your tanks! I think that is the major contributor to the algae problems you had/are having.

Your tank appears to be lightly planted. Pack some plants in those nanos and you should be able to avoid most types of algae. If you keep the Anubias for the nano tanks, place them underneath some taller growing plants so they aren't in direct light. this will help avoid algea on them also, especially BBA.

Hopefully you can make it to some meetings in the future. If you need help with the tanks, by all means, let us know!

btw, not only should you give the wattage on that heater of yours in your listing, but you may wanna consider splitting up that heater and filter, may have better luck selling it.
