    Fluval timer suggestions

    Thank you! Yes I would like to have it change from day to night but I like the idea that some timers are able to turn on and slowly go up to brightest setting and the same for Turing off. I just can’t find one that works with this light.

    Fluval timer suggestions

    Thank you, I looked into that one and for some reason that I can’t remember why but my husband said it won’t work with my light. I could probably do on/off but won’t let me use the sunrise setting

    Fluval timer suggestions

    Thank you, I have live plants with some endlers, cardinals and 2 shrimp. I wasn’t using a timer at all and was getting a bad algae problem so I’m trying to get that under control and figured I needed a good timer!

    Fluval timer suggestions

    Algae help!

    I don’t think I leave the lights on to long maybe 12 hours max but I’ll definitely have to watch it and turn them off earlier. I feed the fish one time daily and probably change the water 65%, I thought weekly but my husband says I do it every 2 weeks ‍♀️ I guess I should do it more often.

    7 week old Endler feedings

    I have 10 Endlers that are almost 7 weeks old now. How many times a day should they be eating? When they were born I saw several times a day so I have been doing 3 times a day but don’t know how long to do that for or if that’s to much? Thanks!
