This is an interesting and very informative thread. I love the tank dimension and will most probably be getting one when I do my fully planted tank.

55 gallon, 48" T5 HO, SunSun HW303A and Emperor 400 filtration

Thanks. Yeah, I liked it a lot as well, but running 2 of them was too much light for low tech. I'm going to see how it goes with one light for a while (now that I've added CO2) and I may add the other back on if it looks like it needs more.

It looks like you went back to just 1 light fixture. Why the switch?

He addressed that at a couple points in the thread - even had photos.

Was because the lighting was too intense and causing algae issues. He found that using one fixture and raising it above the tank provided adequate lighting. Since then, Marineland has released PAR data that back up that finding.

What he said ^

I actually put the 2nd one back on, because I have added pressurized CO2 but I'm still experimenting, and may just need one still.

Actually went back to two lights now, and it works GREAT as high tech. (I run C02 now in there.

I'll take some pics, in the next day or so

So funny that you said that, because I just took a bunch of pics, and am about to upload them!
I had a nice kid just give me some HC a few days ago, but I think you can get it from Kahala Petland *if you're in Hawaii*

Here are some pics I just shot last night..I did a massive trim about a week ago, so it's looking a little bear again. But I'm really getting it to where I want it to be.. Cultivating Bucephalandras of a few different sp. is really fun.
One of my Buce's has sent out a flower! I've never see that underwater before.




























Thanks for looking!
