Greedy's Hygro tank

This 10 gallon tank has been setup for a few months now, it has dwarf hygro, and sunset hygro. I dose micro and macro daily, along with flourish. i use a 18watt floro tube over the tank. This tank is home to one male flag fish and 3 female flag fish.

I had 2 floro strips over the tank before and they were in the yellow and orange spectrum





then i switched to the white single bulb.

Your welcome, thanks for checking it out! Heres some from today after last nights auction. I sold my 2 pairs of flag fish and some sunset hygro and got some guppies that came from a line from the guppy breeder Charlie Pratt.
