Re: [APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 13, Issue 27

The night viewing light actually might slightly reduce
stress, since the night light comes on just before the main
lights go out, which is well after sundown. So instead of
the aquaria just going from very bright to total darkness
in a moment, there is an interim period of dim light.

But then who knows what fish think or feel?

Re the white cloudiness, if it's what I think it is, it
might get worse before it gets better or it might clear up
quickly (probably will with the way you have set up the
aquarium). But water changes won't help or hurt it. Those
bacteria will frow back quickly after a water change until
it's ready to die off.

Anyway, glad if you got some help. After all, we're all in
this together, whatever it is ;-)

Good luck, good fun,
