Sorry MCH, but I forgot that I switched out my old 10w bulb (it died last year) for a 13w bulb. But again, if you have CO2 you can probably bump up the wattage and still keep algae at bay. Depends on what lamp you will be using (reflector quality) and the height, too.

As for the tank:
Nearly all my HC died so I redid the scape. Lava rocks out, driftwood stump in! Will post pictures tomorrow or Monday. I still have to glue some MP onto the stump, which I likely will not get to until Monday.

I am very pleased with how the scape turned out so my HC dying wasn't a total loss. Plus, I found out that my RCS were hiding and not eaten by my Betta.
