Oh... sorry if not.... I was sure it was, but now am having trouble finding it. Suppose it doesn't count when I used it... does it?

I just found out that this is not what keeps a light from tipping over... lol

Ballast is a device used to start a gas discharge lamp, and, once the lamp is started, to limit the flow of electric current.

Actually a lumen is

Quote:
If a light source emits one candela of luminous intensity into a solid angle of one steradian, the total luminous flux emitted into that solid angle is one lumen. Alternatively, an isotropic one-candela light source emits a total luminous flux of exactly 4π lumens. The lumen can be thought of casually as a measure of the total "amount" of visible light emitted.

How about HC? I see you guys talk about it all the time, but I haven't been able to find out what it is anywhere. From context it sounds like a ground-cover foreground plant, but it's not dwarf hairgrass... looking through the plants index on the main page the closest I could find was Pearlweed, but as that's Hemianthus micranthemoides, wouldn't that be HM?

So... what's HC?

HC is Hemianthus callitrichoides. I've seen some people ask what ahsupply is, maybe you can add that.
