Helfrichi Fire Fire
Tanaka Possum Wrasse

Having trouble loading files right now. I'll try again shortly.
The first photo is three months ago at 18hrs a day with the lights in the factory delivered setting. The photo is a litter greener than in person where it is more of a dead yellow/grey color. After that photo I changed the lights to 12hrs on 12 off per a recommendation you made to someone else.

The next three photos are after a few months of 12 on 12 off and about a half cube per day. in the third picture I'm trying to show how mealy the algae is when I scrape it in case that tells you something.

The flow rate is about 240gph (based on holding tubing at L2's inlet level and filling a graduated bucket to 2.5 gallons and doing the math). I tried turning the Radion on and it grew the same yellow/grey algae on the DT glass with in a week or two.

More light? Less light? More food?

Thanks for any help.
