    This is one thing I am positive Roy will agree with me on this one.

    The idea is to make you think the deeper (from front to back) than it actually is.

    Thanks Keith
    i think i need another filter for more biologic filtration.

    I already tried the commom things and nothing works:
    I increased the flow with a power head..didn´t work (there´s plenty of wather circulation and i see this algae balancing with the flow...so there is circulation there :) )
    I reduced the light to 7,5H and reduced the intensity (only 2*54w in 7,5h in the middle only 2h with 4*54w)...didn´t help.
    And there is no relation with the level of light since some of the affected rocks are in low light places.

    Co2 is always constant and with good levels.
    During the night i promote aerenation increasing wather surface agitation...

    This only affects driftwood and rocks..not the plants for now.

    Every other day i remove them as much as i can, by hand, by excel, or even H2o2 and they come back in a few days.

    I also reduced the Nitrate dosing to only 10ppms per week since my tap wather already has 25ppm and also has some small value sof amonia!

    Not a critic problem but very anoying

    At the moment your tank and fish look very healthy plus plenty of water movement.
