What about a nice aponogeton/sword/barclaya as a centre piece surrounded by HC and a small species of fish?

I know...really simple but you can play with the colours through your fish choice and aponogetons ..well I find them nice/interesting to look at..

Added a meanwell eln-60-48d also made a diy black acrylic enclosure for the driver waiting for the 3 Digital Blue led Amp Panel Ampmeter and the 10v adapter to finish it off. Everything is growing but some of the stem plants the middle is starting to turn dark and dieing what can cause this?

Thanks its worth the cash even better if you buy a good dimmer driver so you have control over the leds.

Thanks its a fake dog :p.

Here a update have a problem with the tank its been very cloudy for a few weeks not sure whats the cause, all the test i did are good the ferts haven't changed. I did a 60% water change today and still cloudy I even did full clean on the rena xp3 last week. Only way to clear it up for a few days is use Acurel F 25.
