I was able to use the same light stand system that I used on my 40 gallon setup. I switched out the shorter rod that the lights hang on for a longer one. I was originally planning on light the tank with 4 spiral cfls in hanging bayco worklight fixtures. But as of now I'm using 3 and the 4th is a spot light for effect (more on that later)

The tank has been setup for a couple months now the video below is of the tank for a couple weeks ago. The cryptocorynes are growing back. I'm not having very good luck with the alternanthera so I am thinking about replacing it with taller crypt species.
