will there be any issues with algae? having the light on for so long? and not sure if the subtrate needs to have water up to the leafs or under the sand only
Emersed set ups don't usually have problems with algae. There might be the occasional blue green algae, but that appears if there's too much water. Algae forms on the walls of the container sometimes, but usually people add moss to counter it (from what I've heard). My set up is simple: 10gallon tank with lights and soil. I mist every now and then and then I leave it alone.

so does the tank need a srand wrap with holes over the top of the tank? also whats a good misting system for cheap to get? i was looking at the Mistking but its pricey just to grow plants lol lazy to keep spraying them down xD.... any idea?
