The second FTS has the new lighting...I think my iPhone adjusts the brightness so you cant really tell. The first FTS is a bit more yellowish and the second is a blueish. Thanks for the feedback.

I am unclear which picture is with the new bulbs.
I think the new red plant could use some API root tabs.

Finally got some bulbs for my T5HO 2x24W light...I put in zoomed 6.5K and 10K lights...I wanted to see how the 10K was. Ok, before and after!
before (stock eclipse light with plant bulbs and a clip on desk lamp with a 13w daylight CFL)
and the hagen GLO with what I said above...
oh and a new plant that I had to get...saw it at my LFS when I grabbed the lights. wanted some color up in there. (Alternanthera reineckii)
I want to see how this set up does before I dive into DIY CO2. Oh, I also planted most of the plants I had floating...I still have a couple that are just chillin up there, but most are in the dirt. Thanks for checking out my tank.

|n8_crizzle||@nonconductive - Thank you, I can't wait to get some more mad growth on it. I am so happy with the jungle val...I have a 60g that I want to plant, so I need this tank to grow out some plants for it.|

|nonconductive||this is a great tank. just keeps looking better.|

|Hilde||mizu's tank. She had low light (2 clip on lights over 20G long) and had diy Co2. She had great growth.|

|n8_crizzle||Yeah I was thinking about going that route too...just lower the light period and let the plants get the upper hand...I have had a lot of growth in the last week and that's with the stock hood lights (plant bulbs) and the extra 13w daylight lamp...like the vid said, no bulbs yet, Disney World is expensive so they are on hold till payday. I'm wondering if doing DIY CO2 will help, I do like the idea of not having to deal with it though|

|n8_crizzle||Hilde - I think it's a 9 hr light period...I was thinking about changing that, just never got around to it. I think with the dirt in there, there is a lot of extra nutrients...have to find the balance. thanks for the info|

|Hilde||How long is your light period. May help get green algae under control with 6hr light period.|

Thanks everybody for the feedback. I was using DIY co2 in my 10g, still thinking about it for this one. Got some MTS from pianofish, shout out! was cool to see them start to dig into the sand. I hope some of them made it through this Georgia heat, hopefully some are just tired .
