Some changes. Not quite a re-scape. Pulled all the micranthemum umbrosum. And added some more crypt petchii. Also, the hemianthus micranthemoides has just taken off. It's really nice. It is due for a trim tho. Just haven't had the time for maintenance on this tank. Still have some GSA and GDA but it's not that bad. And easy to maintain. I'm thinking if filling in the background with more HM and trim off a lot of the crypt leaves since they have GSA on them. Also, I picked up some tissue culture plants from petco, it's labeled "crypt wendtii green" but it looks more like parva to me. It's still in the process of establishing itself to the tanks parameters so well see how it grows out. It's a slow grower. I dose excel every week or twice week and I think it's helping out the HM. Enjoying this tank a lot. Still has a bit to go as to what I'm envisioning.

|Jack Gilvey||This is great setup! And I think the Fugeray-R is a nice addition. I'm not a fan of actinic over plants, too cold. Nice work!|

Much nicer color! It appears to be a warmer light, the other was closer to 10,000k?
Either way, looking good frrok!

Here it is with the new light. I think it looks brighter already. The greens look way more vibrant as well.

|frrok||Well. I ordered the fugeray -R clip on light for this tank. I'll report back on growth and let you know. I'm hoping the addition of reds will help with growth.|

You should check out some other cube journals for lighting options. I use a Fugeray on one of my 25cm cubes.
Heaters are something you shouldn't go cheap on. $50 will buy a top of the line heater that is less likely to fail than a cheap, rebranded import.

Your plants should do fine with that lighting. You could consider adding a third strip, however, as that would greatly increase your light level.
If you go with anything stronger, you're probably going to need pressurized CO2 and ferts.
