|second||Are those wendtii bronze? they look fantastic, I am trying to redo my 27 to make it more shrimp friendly and less time consuming plant trim wise. Looking into a lot of crypts, your layout is an inspiration!|

There's all sorts of dynamic weather effects that I'm sure your kids would find very fun.

|HSA1255||Wow. I love it and am inspired. About to set up a 20 gal shrimp tank (set up lower) for my kids to enjoy. I am nervous about shrimp and ferts, what kind do you use and did you half dose at first? I have to admit I really liked the look of the 3 hanging lights... how is the led doing?|

|pianofish||I think that it looks great man without the vals! And yes once that background grows in, I think that it'll have a nice lush look to it. At first I was thinking that you should move that slightly dead center gap to the right so that the eye will naturally follow the moss towards the back right corner of the tank, but if your plants fill that gap, then problem solved!|

Well i pulled the vals, they thought they owned the place! The middle looks pretty empty now but it should fill in real quick.
What do ya think?

|The Dude||That really looks great. All my hygro died off. I don't know why. Its gonna be really hard to get those guys out of there to sell of cull, but man does that look nice!|

Yeah it almost looks like its flowering how it changes near the tops.

|tattooedfool83||Awesome tank man. I love the hygro to, it's green by the substrate and as it gets closer to the light the color really comes out.|

|shambhalove.||Cryptocoryne Wendtii. They'll get quite a bit bigger, but fairly slowly.|

Thank you everyone!
Everything has been filling in nicely and the shrimp continue to multiply I`m debating pulling out all of the vals, they need constant trimming in a tank this shallow and the runners want to take over the tank. The Hygro grows like wildfire and is quickly becoming one of my favorite plants, it brings a nice splash of colour to a low light tank.
I finally got around to setting up my Satellite+ and i couldnt be happier. Being able to customize the colours is awesome! Personally I like the orange setting with a little extra red added the best, it really helps bring out the non green plants in the tank and I love the "warmth" it brings to my room. The dynamic effects are more fun than i thought they would be and i cannot wait for the timer so i can setup the sunrise/sunset and cloud cover. Very impressed with this light and you cannot beat the price!! Only one problem, why the blue moonlights? Whats with everyone and their blue moonlighting?? Personally i think its a cool effect in itself but it certainly doesnt look light natural moonlight. Oh well
On a side note, I ordered 2 of Current's TrueLumen Lunar LEDs (1200k) for for my 75 gallon and they look amazing! Finally natural looking moonlights!!
Anyways here's the good stuff...
Moss lawn that needs constant mowing lol
Hygro and Pennywort trying to leave!
