 Hi  Mac,
 
 Thats  a  remarkable  tank  for  first  attempt!  You  are  not  kidding  right   Thumb Up  
 
 I'll  try  to  reply  on  some  of  your  queries...
 
 1)  AR  Mini  is  strange  even  to  me,  it  grows  very  well  in  my  low  light  tank,  under  shades  and  has  vivid  red  tones.  But  the  same  plant  in  high  light  tank  is  not  even  red.  Almost  brown.  Both  tank  receives  EI  dosing.  So  light  is  the  variable  here.
 
 2)  You  can  achieve  a  6  deg  temperature  drop  from  ambient  by  using  simple  cooling  fans.  But  the  frequency  of  water  top  up  is  increased.  If  you  want  to  achieve  even  further  temperature  drop,  chiller  is  the  only  option.  I  have  seen  it  creates  water  condensation  on  glass  here  in  summer.  Something  to  be  aware  of.
 
 3)  Since  you  have  already  invested  in  the  above  ferts,  you  should  dose  as  per  manufacturer  recommendations  on  the  bottle.  You  have  to  be  worried  only  when  plants  shows  signs  of  deficiency.  Later  you  may  lookup  EI  dosing.  Its  cheaper  and  very  productive.
 
 4)  I'm  using  ISTA  skimmers  which  have  been  running  well.  I'm  no  longer  fond  of  glassware  pipes,  tried  once  and  broke  in  normal  handling.  Imagine  if  it  breaks  when  no  ones  around.  For  even  flow  you  are  better  of  using  the  spray  bar  which  came  with  the  filter.
 
 5)  No  comments  here   Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Vipin  J

 Thank  you  Vipin  for  taking  time  to  reply   me,  so  do  u  think  if  m  lower  down  my  light,  AR  mini  will  b  turned  in  to  red,  I  will  try  this  for  a  week  ,  this  light  has  a  regulator  so.
 
 Regarding  chiller  you  are  saying  it  will  create  water  condensation  that  is  also  true,  now  I  already  bought  a  2217;  to  run  with  a  chiller,  what  should  I  do  pretty  confused  now.
 
   Surprised   Crying or Very sad

 Hi  Mac,
 
 Yes  you  should  try  reducing  the  lights  for  sometime.  Not  just  for  AR  Mini,  but  for  the  algae  issues  you  are  facing.  At  the  same  time  keep  monitoring  how  other  plants  are  responding  to  reduced  lights.
 
 Honestly  i  wont  be  worried  much  about  temperature  unless  it  is  strictly  a  moss  only  hardscape.  I  dont  have  anything  against  using  a  chiller,  there  are  other  means  to  keep  tank  relatively  cool.  Dont  go  on  a  spending  spree  just  because  you  can  afford  it.
 
 There's  a  mantra  i  keep  teaching  myself  again  &  again  and  yet  to  learn  "Dont  fix  it  unless  its  broken"   Very Happy  
 
 Regards,
