Reminds of mizu's tank. She had low light (2 clip on lights over 20G long) and had diy Co2. She had great growth.

@nonconductive - Thank you, I can't wait to get some more mad growth on it. I am so happy with the jungle val...I have a 60g that I want to plant, so I need this tank to grow out some plants for it.

Light update

Finally got some bulbs for my T5HO 2x24W light...I put in zoomed 6.5K and 10K lights...I wanted to see how the 10K was. Ok, before and after!
before (stock eclipse light with plant bulbs and a clip on desk lamp with a 13w daylight CFL)

and the hagen GLO with what I said above...

oh and a new plant that I had to get...saw it at my LFS when I grabbed the lights. wanted some color up in there. (Alternanthera reineckii)


I want to see how this set up does before I dive into DIY CO2. Oh, I also planted most of the plants I had floating...I still have a couple that are just chillin up there, but most are in the dirt. Thanks for checking out my tank.

I am unclear which picture is with the new bulbs.

I think the new red plant could use some API root tabs.

The second FTS has the new lighting...I think my iPhone adjusts the brightness so you cant really tell. The first FTS is a bit more yellowish and the second is a blueish. Thanks for the feedback.
