I have something similar on my tank lol. Apparently it is supposed to act as a "moonlight" for the fish during night time. I like your tank btw!

Thanks! Here’s a picture with the regular lights on. That wood isn’t supposed to be floating either.

Yup, it’s a nightlight of sorts but be careful- in my experience the blue light tends to make algae grow faster (especially that annoying brown algae)

I have three types of tetras right now, and I’m thinking of getting two Plecos, maybe some Corydoras, and then a centerpiece fish of some kind.
That's nice! I don't have a big enough tank for a pleco so I have no experience with them. :rolleyes: Corydoras are great lol, my albinos are really active.

I don’t use it, I was just wondering what it was
