Thanks, I have cheap bulbs as well, so anything is going to be better. I just hope to get something that will last me 10 years and don't want to make the wrong decision.

I like it. Don't you have plecos that need wood though?

Thanks :)

I am wondering if the Congo were eating the plants because they were young and going through a growth a spurt. I have not seen them eat any plants except duckweed for a long time.
