Should I change my lighting?
I think I have Cyanbacteria in my tank (slimy and stinks) and my Otos aren't eating it. I have a 45 gallon tank (24" high) and run Marineland Aquatic Plant LED lights. Description below:
By consumer request, Marineland introduces the Aquatic Plant LED. In addition to the 1 watt 6,500K LEDs, each light comes packed with 3 watt RGB LEDs that provide 460nm blue, 660nm red, and green accent lighting to make your aquatic plants thrive, keeping them healthy and lush. The Aquatic Light LED features our new integrated timer, as well as our newly-designed dispersion lens.
