Yeah, I just increased the duration from 8 to 10 hours the other day. I am thinking about adding some more anubias. I really like the way they look. As far as java fern, at first I wa son the fence, but I think I will go ahead and get some to add and tie onto my driftwood. If there is no need for more light, then I will jst keep everything the way it is, and see how everything progresses.

Thanks everyone!
