Here they are (low quality iPhone 4s pics): Installation day 12/11/12 ***Note I was only using EXCEL and Flourish during the time span of these photos.*** So I can safely say if you want only a low-tech tank and lush growth- these lights work very well for that too! Actually I harvested the plants from this tank TWICE during the three weeks and lightly planted a 75 gallon bowfront and heavily planted 42 gallon bowfront (which has these lights also). The Amazon Sword mother plant (left corner) has been very generous also- lots of babies. They were out of control- in a good way. LOL!

Yesterday -I installed the Ultimate CO2 system from GLA and started EI ferts. Will start a journal soon so I can see the progress.

Lotus 3 weeks ago when lights installed:

Picture taken today 3 weeks later. Notice the growth on the Lotus especially:
