An Update on my 46Lt Fluval edge.


Hi all,

Back in October, I put up a tank diary on the set of this tank...It's now December and it's all going well. The flora and fauna have all settled in well.

Added an small LED light (5w) to give it more light...but it's only on for 4 hours a days. The stock lights are on 8 hours a day.

All are growing well.. and pruning has been a fortnightly exercise.

Love the color reflected on the healthy plants.

Yes. The 5W LED has blue lights as well... hence the blue tinge...

Thanks all.
