thanks, so far the light has seemed to be working out great. the belem has been shooting new runners. i trimmed the stargrass down about 3.5", it was basically at the same height as the spray bar before trimming. when i first put it in, it was at about the same height as seen in these pix.

update: belem is slowly sprouting new nodes, but it is slow going. the stargrass is continuing to do good. the seiryu stones have taken on a green hue (algae), as they age in my tank.

How do you control the flow with your 2213? I have one on a 40-gallon and it really moves the water.

Reason I ask is I'll be setting up this exact tank soon (Mr. Aqua, 7-1/2 g, 12-inch cube) and would really love a canister but am concerned about hurricane force tidal waves inside.

Looks nice, tell the Galaxy Rasboras not to be so camera shy
