Sorry for the LONG delay, thought I had uploaded them to this site but didn't. Low quality iPhone 4s pics. :-( These are two 48 inch, "PLANTED SHOW TANK LIGHTS" from Buildmyled. The lighting is very gradually light and shadows for the Discus. Nick was very helpful! Actually I harvested the plants from this tank TWICE during the three weeks and lightly planted a 75 gallon bowfront and heavily planted 42 gallon bowfront (which has these lights also). The Amazon Sword mother plant (left corner) has been very generous also- lots of babies. They were out of control- in a good way. LOL!

Here they are: Installation day 12/11/12

Lotus 3 weeks ago when lights installed:

Picture taken today 3 weeks later. Notice the growth on the Lotus especially:
