Julie7778 Hey guys! I just got a fluval spec and want to upgrade the lighting. I'm thinking diy co2 and growing a Monte Carlo or DHG carpet.

So the problem is, I have a AquaticLife t5 HO light fixture, it's bulbs are 18" and one is a 6000K 18W bulb and the other is a 18W roseate bulb. 36W would be a lot for a 5.6g, so I was thinking of having shorter lighting periods. What do you all think? Thanks.

Please upgrade them to a densely planted 10-20g long or separate them out before they get aggressive and hurt eachother.

Amphiprion1 Update of mine. Probably going to end up tossing the Val. It looks great, but even with substrate dividers, it is CRAZY invasive. It takes just a few days for half a dozen shoots to pop up across the tank.

Any suggestions on something to fill the void that works in moderate to low light?

Shadey ooooh these are all so pretty.

I splurged on rocks and a new substrate, and redid mine this weekend. I don't regret a thing.

it's going to be a bit for the plants to grow in though lol.

Thanks. The dark substrate is ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia and the lighter reddish gravel is CaribSea Super Naturals Rio Grande. The sand is Estes natural sand.

The rocks are plain river stones cherry picked from a couple of bags from Home Depot. Don't remember the exact brand, but they were just in the garden section.

end3r.P The latest shot of mine. Dealing with a little hair algae and a couple of Buces are out of place. The HC is filling in nicely though, especially with Excel only. Home to a betta and three nerite snails.
