Advice: Patience! I don't have very much so i've had to learn from my mistakes. I watch LA Fishguy on youtube and read alot. Don't believe everything you read. What might not work for someone else might work for you. If you can afford it take some risks. Don't be afraid of ick. Use garlic and feed well. It will go away. Alot of flow will solve alot of algae problems and most of the time they will run their course... so don't freak out!
