Question

Hello! Would you happen to have an update of your aquarium? I'm curious what brand/type your bulb is. I'm looking to upgrade my lighting for my 30 gallon and would like to try LEDs in my swag lights.
Your tank looks lovely btw

Hello!

Sorry, but i had to use the led bulb on a 10 gallon tank, so this tank is now only lid by sunlight.

But i have some pictures of the 10 gallon that will show that the led bulbs is growing plants ok. I am using two of this led bulbs in home made fixtures on the 10 gallon tank. I am also using the same sand and dirt as in the tank you are asking for update pictures.

I must say that this leds combined with the dirt with cow manure have resulted in an explosive plant growth. No fertz is added and i had to reduse the light time to 6 hours beacuse of some hair algae.

Here is a picture of the 10 gallon taken 13.03.2013



And here is a couple of pictures from today, as you can see the growt is great and a couple of plants try to get out of the tank. Cheap hosehold led bulbs is working

The sunlight from that window may have something to do with the growth and algae problem. I do think the fixtures you made look awesome though.

Yes the daylight could very well be the reason for the hair algae, but anyway the reduced light light time fixed the algae problem, the hair algae is gone.

Tanks for liking the fixtures

The first picture is from day one, and the second is from day 13.

What do you think about the growth of the first 13 days of this tank?
