How do you like the lights?? Any reviews??
@Brian_Cali --> Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' and Elatine Hydropiper are two completely different plants....they are also the exact opposite in size on the spectrum ('Monte Carlo' grows larger while elatine hydropiper/mini glosso is known as one of the smallest, if not the smallest, foreground plants)

|synaethetic||Your overgrown glosso drives me nuts! I'll trim it for you for free haha. If you do have plans to trim it, do so by clipping it close to the substrate leaving only it's runners. I like glosso for the fact that it can overgrow and still maintain health at substrate level, where as with HC you need to trim it low, and frequently, in order to avoid die off underneath. However, glosso grows too fast for my preference whereas HC is somewhat slower in moderate light. Glosso grows everywhere and infests the tank, HC is easier to control.|

|mistuhmarc||At first, I thought that the glosso had attempted to climb up the rotala. Hahaha|

That actually sound pretty cool, if only I could somehow get glosso not to twist when it grows in the water column, I'll do it!
If anyone looking to grow a glosso carpet, do it! It's fast, easy to grow, and roots well.

|Bserve||You should totally make a rotala jungle with a tiny bit of glosso in the front center|

|talontsiawd||Wow, that is insanity right there|

I'm in need of a trim.

|nate_werdy||Where did you get the 23 watt cfl lights?? I'm looking to do the same thing in a 60p I'm starting up soon.|

^ Thanks Gnod, glad you like it. I'm sort of on cruise control right now, just letting it do it's thing.
I got two of the colour version and I turn the blue down quite a bit. Pearling is more intense with the blue but that probably just because there is more light.
Results of the Race: Winner Glosso
The glosso in the back were planted trimmings, glosso doesn't grow that fast.
About the LEDs:
A pet peeve of mine is the different colours when taking a picture. Unless you take a picture at the same time each day (no one does that) you will get different intensity. I have the ramp up and down at certain times with a "high light" period.
A good example is this picture, with higher white it looks like this,
The LEDs should be in the States, I think you guys have two distributors but I'm not sure if it's the older version. I'm actually trying to get a fellow member here some of these units, I think he can really showcase the lights.

i just totally spent my friday morning reading through this again.. haha the progress is impressive man.
how are you liking the new lights? i checked a us seller and apparently there are 2 versions a "color" and non color version apparently. i'm assuming you got the color version yea?

I am TERRIBLE at wiring though, haha. And I've run out of electrical outlets :P

Why dont you look into a diy solution? The you could add however many color leds you want. Plus you wouldn't need a very large power supply. Ledgroupbuy.com has everything you need, amongst other places. HTH
