Loving that my Ram is living in harmony with my shrimp now! They've become a lot more comfortable in the tank and are regularly out in the open space!

How are the pandas doing? I hope they spawn for you since you got so many of them.
I put them in about 2hrs ago and they look to have settled in nicely! I think I'll have to set up another bigger tank, this one is starting to get over crowded haha

The only thing that has changed in the tank is i changed my cheapo LED light to a fluval aquasky 2.0. This is the custom setting I'm using. Is there anything obvious in the light setting that could be causing the BBA to come back?

I have had good results with maxing the white at 90% and the red at 68% - Your white sand may be reflecting more than you'd want.

I would turn the lights down more than that. I have different systems but in my 22G (long) I max at 45%. In my 20Ghigh I max at 65%.
Until things stabilise it may be best to stick to white light before making gradual changes. That is probably what the cheapo LED was producing.

Funny enough the cheap LED did have red blue and green lights, the tank was actually doing really well with it. I just wanted the fluval because you can customise it to gradually go from light to dark and vice versa. So you saying turn off red blue and green and only leave white?

I changed my settings to this.
