I had no problem with it in my DT...my foxface eradicated any long algae.
Sorry to hear that you're getting rid of the setup...but I do believe that this hobby should be more enjoyment than work. Although there is some work to be done with our tanks, it shouldn't get to a point where we're spending more time "working" on it, instead of enjoying our work.
I am partial to the bowfront......mostly because it is what I have and I love looking at others and plan out what mine could look like. I could understand being sad about it, when I finally do upgrade I dont know how I will feel about letting this one go....I have learned everything from this tank an so much work is going into it.ty marineswife :) its my old tank. i sold it months ago :(
