John's 10g Fern Tank

Well I don't have any pictures at the moment as I am starting to get ready on working on the 10 gallon tank. I still need to get a background, and upgrade the lighting before starting. I just wanted to share to you guys that I will be moving all if not some of my java fern plants to the 10g and will be filling the 10g up with black etes gravel. For lighting I am thinking about ordering 1x 36watt kit from ah supply or buy those handy 50/50 mini flourescent light bulbs. I will be dosing the tank mostly flourish liquid fertilizers, macro and micro nutrients. Well thats all I could think of for right now, so stay tuned for any updates =)

Or you can find those 20 watt 6500k screw in spiral cfs. I have found them at WalMart(Lights of America) and Bed Bath and Beyond(Verilux). The ones from WalMart are only $5 and with 2 in an 10 gallon incandecent hood you could have 4 wpg. I myself used the 10 gallon hood to ad an 1 extra wpg in my 37 gallon tank!

40 gallon SeaClear Acrylic, 192 watt Orbit Lunar PC, Filstar XP2, Filstar XP1, JBJ Regulator, Rhinox 5000 glass co2 diffusor, 9 watt UV sterilizer, Hydor Inline Heater, Pool Filter Sand substrate
Filstar pimp #53

How comes shoppings so stupid, looks at all this stuff I haves, what do I do's with it.

Really? I'll have to check it out, is the lightbulb in the aquaria section of walmart or the appliances?

I'm looking out on unirdna's auction, I hope I win it =)
