The Egde is a very neat tank, but is soooo difficult to work with!

Are you running any co2 in this tank? I don't see any mention of it. If not, how are your plants (specifically the repens) doing?
When no one is around I leave the hood off for better light coverage. When we're watching TV or have company over I put the lid on. Once everything fills in I might leave the hood on 24/7, we'll see...

I'll take pictures of 13W & 26W of lighting with and without the hood.

I don't run CO2 but I dose Flourish Excel and ferts. The S. Repens is doing great. It may be growing a little slower than a CO2 injected tank but it looks nice & healthy.
