Its 1/8 of a teaspoon of KNO3, 1/32 of a teaspoon of KH2P04, and 1/32 of a teaspoon of trace ferts. Luckily I actually have teaspoons that go that low.

Kelvin and Lumens?

I got two 13w CFLs that are 2700k and 900 lumens. Would this work okay for a 10 gallon aquarium that will be planted with Dwarf Hairgrass?

Alright thanks for the feedback everyone. I think I'll just go with floramax. Cheaper. And I'll mix it with some black sand to hold the plants in place.

Hahaha! Keeping african cichlids in a planted tank would be a disaster. I have a 55 gallon Mbuna tank set up in a different room :) I'm thinking about keeping CPDs or a gourami or somethin.
