Hey flying,

In nano tanks I do not use a noon day burst - only in larger tanks such as 90-P, which makes it effective.

My photoperiod on all aquariums is 10 hours. If using noon burst then 2 low-6 high-2 low. You could even try 3-4-3.

For your layout, on this aquarium I would focus on plant health and growing - learn how the plants grow and how they flourish. Then on your next layout go for an all-out aquascape using the knowledge you've gained.

Any tips for improving my layout?
