no prob man
I keep them around the maximum height. This allows for lots of space for working on the tank and it's still plenty bright.

Thanks! That helps tremendously. I have 161/4" height clearance where I want to place my 12g tank. I'll be using the same Archaea lights. At what height do you have your lights set at?
|07-29-2012 07:01 PM|
In addition to being extendable, the lights tilt on top and bottom, so there may be another inch or so of wiggle room beyond my measurements. Hope that helps.

mayphly - I'd estimate the height of the tank + lights to be around 20"...but the lights are on telescopic arms so the height is somewhat adjustable. I'll try to take some accurate measurements today and get back to you.

Your tank is very inspiring to me. Very tranquil. I was thinking about going with the same lights. Could you please tell me what the total height on your set up is (to the top of the lights?)

Some shots from the past couple months:
For a while I was keeping two distinct kinds of nurii. Not sure if one is considered "pahang mutated" as they were both purchased as simply nurii. This type is low growing, vividly patterned pinks, oranges and greens...quite nice.
Immersed spathe (unfortunately wasn't in town to see if this opened or not)
And this other type grew taller, had less patterning, and blood red stems.
In june/july I had to leave the tank unattended without ferts/co2 for three weeks. I lowered the light cycle and when I came back there was surprisingly minimal damage aside from plants greening up and some ranunculus melting. I decided it was time to rescape anyway and gifted the elatine, hydrocotyle, blyxa, and ranunculus to make room for new stuff.
Crypt nurii and affinis
Added Persicaria "Sao Paulo" and Hyptis lorentziana I received from crazydaz. They arrived with a bonus Ludwigia hybrid as well. The stems were just planted in this pic and hadn't adjusted to the light yet.

As for the canister, I found the Zoomed way underpowered and replaced it long ago with an eheim 2211, which I then upgraded to a 2215.
