Thanks for the views!

@AzFishKid - I've had the tank for around 2 months now, but haven't had much growth of plants.

Perhaps I have unrealistic expectations but none of the P. helferi are much bigger than when I put them in, the S. repens has some growth, but isn't really spreading and the C. wendtii is growing (3 extra leaves per plant), but leaves develop brown edges after a couple of weeks (leaves currently 1 inch long max)

I swapped out the 'white' tube yesterday for an 8W powerglow (the other bulb is actually an aqua-glo), in the hope the spectrum change might help, but it does look a bit pink/blue for my liking.
