my heater was on overdrive... water was warm to the touch. Looks like I need to go buy a new one :| plants are now in the tank. can't wait for the eco complete to come so the plants can be grounded

put the CFLs in today and set up a timer for two 3 hour periods with a two hour break, 6 total hours!
i will be posting pictures when i get more substrate. right now the tank is a mess with floating stem plants and all sorts of stuff since I dont have enough substrate to keep stems down
