Thanks Alpinist and Jeff...
I forgot to mention that the tank would have pressurized CO2. So, sponge filters are out, unless I can put a powerhead over the intake tubing of a sponge filter....

Umm...I'll have pics up by te end of the week. But I think the growth is not as compact compared to higher lighting levels. It depends on what you definition of compact is...:-)

Plant id

I was wondering if somebody could id the foreground plant in between the rocks, also extending to the mid-ground in some cases.
My guess was some kind of moss, or hc.

I keep the CO2 on 24*7, some people turn theirs off at night.

One tube in my 2-tube T5HO fixture stopped working. I have no idea when. It is on a 29g that undergoes a ton of change.
Is there any way to fix this? If not, what is usually the recommended course?...

I beg to differ. The fishneedit.com 36" fixture, suspended on top of a 30", is in no way ugly.
