sxc.hu is free. The top row and bottom rows of pictures are an advertisement.

I use iStockPhoto for work as well. It's one of the best, but it's not free.

Well, I don't mind if I get addicted. It's just that the grind of EQ was a real time-suck. To get anything done or do anything worthwhile you had to grind away forever.

I just trimmed a whole bunch and it's floating around another tank. They're all just plantlets but they'll grow like crazy in no time. PM me if interested.

How much is a lot? I need to thin out some of this in my 10 gallon. I've got about 65% of the substrate covered with it.

I don't think there's any difference in bulb life between lengths. I hear Geissman are good bulbs but I have no experience with them.

Two bulbs right next to each over a 24" tank probably won't...

That's what I figured. Raising the fixture is not an option though. I need it to sit on top of the rank itself.

I wish mine stayed on "no problem." Twitch that knob just a little bit too much and WOOSH/POP. They come right off. 'Course I'm using the cheapest Meijer check valve there is...no barbs.

Buuuut, for a 6 foot tank...I would get two of the 3 ft 2x54W fixtures. Otherwise you'll have dark spots on the outside.

Well, referring to Hoppy's sticky post in this lighting forum, then at 24" from the substrate, 4x54W is TOO HIGH.

2x54W should be just right for HIGH LIGHT.
