    Hi Mitch,

    Welcome to MASA!

    How old is your tank?
    What is your current water parameters?

    The nennie look a bit bleached, not a good sign, but can be fixed.

    How often do you feed?
    When last was a successful feeding?

    Thanks for the info.

    Which lights do you run over your tank?
    What size tank do you have?

    If you are running only 2 white T5's the lighting on your tank is way to little.

    How deep is your tank?

    Just do it slowly, don't want to stress the nennie anymore.
