Swapped out the light for a 6500K CFL bulb, wow is it bright. Uploading pics today.

Update 12.31.13

Sorry for the cell phone pics...

S. Repens has grown in quite well, this is after a small trim, need to get some curved scissors to trim again.

Crypts were overgrown so I yanked out about 5 plants and moved them into my 25g at home

Blyxa is nice and bushy.
