Lol yea theres circulation. Getting my bio wheel today if my mom ever gets here. The waters clear, Its just I got to wipe the film off the sides....But yea livestock im still trying to work out. Its becoming a MAJOR issue so I may have to give my mom a little...Nudge...In the right direction. Anyway also trying to figure out about what size powerhead i would need to give some back wall heat circulation without stirring up the aragonite again

Sounds good. Nerite snails are also a good source of algae control in BW aquariums. They are commonly sold as SW snails. You can also order them online.

It's just the same stuff as pillow stuffing. Its made of polyester.
Similar to this stuff. https://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=3578+4136+4231&pcatid=4231

Most brands say filter floss on the bag.

Didnt exactly 'order' it. Just talked to the woman about them she said 'ANYTHING' I wanted she could get, Just because of how much work I put into research about the fish. Said she would call me. So I guess you could say I ordered them yes. However my mom was a seamstress for like 15 years on the side been sewing all her life, So i probably got a bag or 2 of pillow stuffing just laying around. Quick question though: Is there anyway I can make a kind of bioball thing for it? I know I read something somewhere about it but I cant remember it.

Got it set up and added some to my 300 GPH topfin filter also. Clearing up what came out pretty quick (cloudiness) lets hope it keeps it up.

Good. Just make sure its not cotton. I don't know about the bioball thing. You would have to look on the internet for that. Well i guess you're just waiting for a call then.
