Update.... Not much new. HC is growing nice. Staro is doing ok. I did pickup a nano co2 system and I have my stand all set up.

A few more weeks weeks till I fill up the tank.

I'm still looking for a set of 13mm lily pipes. The problem I'm having finding any is.... I need the intake to be less than 20cm. Anyone have any ideas?

oops my mistake. sorry didn't quite take notice of the type of bulbs that were there. i actually have the 24" model. don't know why they have a separate switch for the fan... it gets pretty hot. i would never run it without the fan!

I used 2/3 of a 9L bag. For a 55g, I'd get 3 9L bags.

I'm sorry...I'm newbie. Where's the water? Or is this the way this type of plant needs to be set up? ....no water and let is grow lush and then add the water?

Thx
