Sorry if this is a double post. I had a post all ready to go then I accidentally navigated away from the site and poof the post was gone.
Anyway, as I've posted previously, I'm really making an effort to get the hair algae under control in my 29 so it doesn't get transferred to the 75.

The Florida ricordeas and the Xenia seem to be the only things that have always done well under the PC lights (that I used to have) on this tank. Luckily, they seem to continue to be realitively happy under the lower wattage t5s.
