I havent decided on plants yet. I might pick up a second light, but I wanted to try one out first. I really wanted a mellowed out shady tank. Most plants in it will be mosses, and maybe some hair grass or baby tears if I can get away with them :P. I know its just one bulb, but the par output on these par30 leds is much better then the cheapo LED bulbs you buy at lowes or walmart. I use these bulbs on my 20gallon SW coral tank and they grow much better then they did with my 150watt metal halide.
As for hiding the Equipment Im thinking bout building a little shelf for my filter to sit on, and a basket on the side to hold my Co2. I like the open look of the stand, and don't mind seeing equipment. I just want to know if you think the stand will hold the tank :P
