I am modifying a 2.5 gallon acrylic aquarium to be an algae-scape, with nothing but dense green algae. I plan to put a few dwarf shrimp or micro crabs in. I have replaced the small LED with the LED strip from a 29 gallon aquarium and it is very, very bright. I want to blast it with 10+ hours of light per day and dose macros. Only the front will be wiped clean. The small filter that the tank uses has a sponge over the intake now. Below are pictures, tell me if you think it would work.
