Update! Sunday, April 1, 2012.
So I planted more HC, 2 pots worth.
They are bright green, and old HC are dark green.
Hopefully this will speed up my carpeting!

Pictures Cheers!

Full Tank Shot!


Hope you guys enjoy the progress!
Comments, concerns, tips are welcome!

*Question, What light fixture should I get for this awesome tank? As you can see I don't care the look of it right now because its on dry start. BUT after 4/5 weeks from now, I would like to get a nice light fixture that goes with shallow tank.
Help appreciate it!

Pretty much. I think 36" if you round off the number.

Update! Sunday, April 8, 2012.
Not much growth on the left side (the new HC), some growth on the right. Probably because of the two different light fixtures I use. Need to find a light fixture soon lol.

If you can build a canopy you could use three clip on lights with CFL daylight bulbs.
