Anyone know if the lighting on this tank is low/med/high? My husbands about to get his up and going Hes got a list of plants that he likes, so I want to make sure he has the right lighting for them.

Wow that's really encouraging. Now I just have to figure out a way to convince the wife to grant me a permit for another tank

What's AS1???

I don't cover it at all. They go back and forth all the time.

New user here. Here's my Spec that I keep on my desk at work. I have a feeling some of the plants aren't going to like the stock lighting, but the moss on the driftwood is doing great. I just pulled some extra plants from my home tank and setup this tank at work. Its small, looks good, and easy to take care of. Some CRS will go into the tank at a later date.

Hope you have better luck with yours than I did. Light began to die within weeks and the pump for the filter only lasted about 2 months.

Did fluval replace it? Sorry to hear that. Mine has been running strong for 6+ months.
