I set one up about a month ago, I got two extra light strips with it, both all white. I have easy plants in it for now to cycle it and they are all growing like weeds. Definitely enough light. The filter that comes with it is a little small so I put a zoomed 501 on it as well. It's a fun tank. If I could figure out how to post pictures id put some up. Let us know what you decide to do. It would be good to have some more ecopico folks out there.
