One 15W bulb isn't much fun. I would recommend to check out www.ahsupply.com and look at the 2x 13W kits, they come with good reflectors, and if they fit into your hood, would give you some good light.
Oh... I guess Amanda said that already...

Hey Wasserpest

I took a look at your 10 gallon tank, and was wondering what kind of lighting you use and the names of your plants. Maybe i could get some ideas

thanks to everybody who has replyed you have been very helpful. I think i will end up using the 2x13W kit at AHSupply.com

Again Thanks

Hi Eman,

The tank came with a two bulb fixture, which I fitted with two Walmart 10W fluorescent bulbs. I also used mirror tiles to diy a very efficient reflector, so even with 20W only a lot of light goes into the tank.

Plants: Crypt wendtii, Pearlweed, Java moss, Java fern, Glosso (not thriving right now), some Salvinia.

Okay so i went to my lfs and got three Harlequin Rasboras. These little guys are great. they seem very happy and healthy, and are swimming all over the place. Anyway the first plants i got were the Walmart bulbs. I got them because everyone was saying how well they grow and easy to maintain. Apon. and some kind of plant that resembles the tiger lotus. Im really excited to watch them grow. Plus they don't really need a lot of lighting. I have one question, how long do you suggest i wait until i add some more Rasboras. I want to have a school of six or seven. They shouldn't add to much to the bioload because they are so tiny Right?

Thanks
Eman

Eman...I would wait one week before adding anymore Rasboras, then you can go ahead and add 3-4 more.

Do you have any fish for algae eating? Or are you planning on getting any? If so, I'd say go with a couple oto cats, they're small and not aggressive in the least. That school of rasboras you're planning on building up should look great in your tank, very nice fish.
