Here is an update pic. I am moving everything from the 10 gall in to buckets and some of the stuff into the 25 gall tank. Now im waiting for the water to clear up a bit and my dad is going to the store and going to get me a new bulb for plants. Here are some pics of how the tank looks so far.

The surface of the water to the top of the sand is only 16 inches. So from the lights to the sand is only 17 inches.

Ok, here are some up date pics. I got 3 lights on the tank which = 50 watts on the tank. All 3 bulbs are diff. The first pic is 15 watts and it takes out the greens more, the second pic is 20 watts and it takes out the blues and reds more, and the third pic is 15 watts and its blueish purple or something like that and makes everything look better. The last pic is all 3 lights on at the same time.




Tell me what you think.

Here are some more pics and on the first pic you can see all 3 diff bulbs because they are all diff colors. Here are some updates of the tank. The last pic is all 3 diff lights on at the same time.
