Yes true! I am thinking of sticking with my Santa Monica Rain Scrubber but even some of that light spills a little. The doors are fairly simply to click in which is cool for flexibility. I just love being able to glance over before heading to work and being able to see the entire system and if anything seems off. But doors hide the mess and some of the sounds.I like the look. Only problem if you had a fuge. Those lights can get annoying.
I think this as well? The last two tanks I have setup with dry rock -that i let sit without light for a month- have both gone crazy with what appears to be bacteria goo. After a month I plug in a cheap green killing machine UV sterilizer and it seems to clear a bit. I will use a net to collect the excess stringy slime.I thought the beneficial bacteria just coat the rocks but are not visable.
Thanks! I really liked this Aqua Forest rock and the shapes that came in the box. At a glance, it seems more porous than some dry options I have used in the past.I like your aquascape!
