'One Tree Hill' - 10 gallon low tech

Hello Everyone! This is my first journal here, so bear with me! I won't bore you with the details of how I ended up here, but this is my first tank with a planned aquascape. I've been reading ALOT...

I don't think you are understanding what people are saying. Each of those bulbs is 24 watts of T5 HO lighting. Using all three would put you in super high light territory, which would equal an algae...

I would definately add more substrate. 1 inch in front and 3 in the back is not much. For such a tall tank, you could do like 2-3 inches in front and 5 to 6 in the back. Great piece of wood. I look...

Maybe you could try using T5 NO fixtures instead. Use 2 2 bulb fixtures to spread the light out over the tank better. These are the ones I am talking about, they are often recommended here:

It actually looks to me like it would work well for a small tank. Yes, they are only small low power LEDs, but there are a lot of them! The power says 13.8 watts, and them being LEDs, they are super...

Thanks again for the reply. I believe the 7/16" dimension has to be the OD. 7/16" = 11.11mm, which is obviously not going to fit on a 9mm lily pipe. I did a little investigating and ordered some...
