What type of fluorescent lighting are you using? I read that you had 3wpg but how did you get there?

Thanks,

Wpg only applies to T8 and T12 bulbs.

Ahh.. T5.. Last question. Maybe )

Are they normal output or high output T5s?

I have the same tank. I have been playing with the lighting for a few weeks. Your tank looks good.


Hilde,

Thanks for the link.

Normal Output, unfortunately in the country where i currently live they dont sell anything related to planted tanks(light,co2,ferts,test kits), so i had to work with whatever available to grow the plants.

I love how green and thriving everything looks.

Have you considered a moss wall? I think a dark moss would really offset all your brighter green plants. Then again, I am in love with the concept of moss walls so it could just be me....

As a side-note: Pretty Music :3
