    light criticism

    It's a 12 bulb, 36 watt, good for a 5" green spot. As my best guess.
    Might burn, but hard to tell with the camera, as bright lights, mess with the camera.

    after my tank had it's diatom bomb... which all went to my algae screen, i cleaned it off. Added 4 chromis and this is what is looks like after 4 days.. center section down to a 4" circle starting to fill in nicely, alot of dark green algae (my phone sucks for taking pictures, tried it with flash off) Also, split the screen into 2 verticals.

    Yea spreading that light out would really help the majority of the screen, and let the middle fill in.

    so I am getting dark green hair grow here and there.. I know my tank is "new" and cycle finished. Added 4 chromis and 1 orange sholder tang, 3". will the scrubber still fill out or I need more in the tank. Have a few corals, butI know they dont count for hardly anything. Just curious if there is enough in the tank to start getting the thick algae?

    Probably will stay thin and brown, but should still work fine. Mainly want to get the light evened out.

    New little upgrade to my scrubber.. made some arylic splash enclousers.. 2 peice box, for easy cleaning. splash box covers 3 sides and under each light. Will the arcylic act like a diffuser and move should I move the lights back in closer?
