theericafish Added a new video. First post is getting pretty lengthy, I should do something about that...

Not extremely satisfied with the video but I only spent about 20minutes making it/uploading. Not too bad

theericafish The funny thing is that staring at the tanks actually makes me fall asleep and I prefer to stay up late. The 10g turns off around 9pm and the 20 at 11:23. The 5g is my night light and stays on until around 2am.

Still trying to improve my photography skills and it seems like something you never master. Using a tripod and a remote shutter release or using the cameras timer helps a lot with the sharpness of the photo. I still need a new lens though, wish money grew on trees...

jmf3460 lovely tanks and kudos on your photography skills. I am envious of falling asleep in your room, it would take me forever to go to sleep with all the good stuff to look at.

I recently got a 20L also and right now I just have 3 CFL clamp-on work lights on top of the tank but the light is pretty un-even so I was thinking of upgrading to LED. The Ray2 seems like a good choice but I'm trying to aim for medium high/high light so wanted to see what your thoughts on the Ray2 over a 20L tank. Thanks
The ray2 on a 20long is definately high light. You can grow pretty much any carpet. You are going to need co2 and ferts though. The fugeray or planted plus might be a better option but still co2 would be good.

I raised the light because it was actually too much light and it was causing algae on the carpet and other areas in the tank. I still do get some algae growing on the plants closest to the light.

Check out that thread and scroll down to the charts and you can learn some stuff about par and which lights are high light at what distance.
