I got one off amazon with the $5 shipping but realized that had it advertised as low iron. Knew it didn't exist so I ordered it and went it arrived sent an email to amazon saying it was advertised wrong and I was not happy. Long story short they gave me $10 back, hell of a deal if I say so myself! Will be setting it up next month when I move into my new apartment. Can not wait!

I was having fun watching my fish dart back and forth today so decided to make a video. Everyone seems to do shrimp in their 12 gallon but i like the way the fish swim around such a long narrow tank.

Re do the tank today. Was using AS Malay and Amazonia mix. Does not like the dust that Malay has. Change it now to only Amazonia normal on bottom and powder on top. Love it! Now just hope that HC will fill in soon! LOL Love the new LED Ray II. I think it is the best light for this?

Is it just me or that ray2 fixture is bowing down in the middle?
I was going to get this light but the par is very high. You need to rise the light. @sunyang730, please keep us updated if there any algae going on with the light resting right on top of the tank.

I just found out that it raise the temp up when I have it on for more than 3 hours. I have it on for almost a week on my old setup and the only thing I have is green algae on the glass. That is what I got when I have my 26w. I will need to adjust the time so I doesn't stay on that long during the period. And the light does now bow down in the middle. Might be the angle that I am taking.

Just an FYI, for some reason GLA has the 91-b marked off for 59.99 instead of 84.99, with shipping it came out to less than the mr. aqua! decisions decisions, was going to eventually get another 12g long, but maybe this might be too good to pass up.

Not sure if this has been answered before, but what lights have you guys had success with good growing conditions on this tank? I tried a t5HO 2x39W fixture, and most of my plants ended up starving from too much light. 46 pages is a lot of information to sift through, lol.

I think a lot of people are using the Marineland Double Bright LED, but you have to raise it up. I'm using a Finnex 30" FugeRay, also hung up. 2x39w is definitely a lot for this shallow of a tank.
