I am consider buying a 72 gallon semi-circle tank. The light that came with the tank only total 40 watts total (the bulb is aquagrow). What can i grow in the tank? the tank measurement is: 42.5" in diameter and 24" high. Any advise on how I can increase the WPG? Thanks....

Plus the whole setup will cost me $460 include stand, canopy, light and tank.. is that a good price? the tank is a semi-circle and all glass. Made by Fujia... anyone heard of that brand before?

I have never heard of them. Obviously not a North American manufacturer... heh..

$460 for a 72 Gallon bowfront with the accessories you listed there is a steal... At least for my area. I'm sure others will pitch in...

As far as increasing your WPG, you could always retrofit a pair of 96 watt PC bulbs in there...

I don't know the brand, but unless it's used so much as to be unpresentable, it leaks in violation of the laws of gravity, or it's made of aluminum foil, it's a very good price!

The store owner actually set it up and it looks great. Very cool with plants and stuff. The store owner is very nice. If anyone in Oakland or in the bay area check his store out. I have not bought anyting from him. His store name is: Nature Aquarium and Pet Supply on 1823 Park Blvd Oakland, CA.

He just took over this store from a previous owner (4 Seasons Aquarium). Way back before he took over this store, the store was a mess. He cleaned it up really nice and looking to stock different kind of fish. If anyone in Oakland check him out. he starting up maybe we all could give him some pointers on what kind of plants and fish to stock hehehe :lol:
