The name of those ones escapes me at the moment. I will find out though. The setup is just a 10 gallon tank with a Jalli 26 watt light. I am ordering an additional light so it will have 26 more watts. I am running a small Co2 system also. It is only one of those yeast style ones but it seems to be working. I have another tank that I am going to be starting soon but I wanted to do a small one first. The one I will be doing is a 72 Bowfront. Can't wait for that! Thanks for the comment!

That is going to be the most difficult part of the 72. Yes this is supposed to look Amazonian. I'm glad it looks it ( minus the green water ) Thanks for the comment!

Actually I will throw em into my Angel tank, but that is an idea. I never thought of that. I was going to put Discus in the 72. Maybe I will thro in the angels instead. That would save me some money. lol

Is that red plant Red Temple?

Your tank looks amazing. What kind/how much lighting are you using. It looks like it would be enough going by the pics because it looks concentrated on the center with nothing on the sides.

Nice job! The shrimp are pretty cool too!

I can,t remember the name of that one at the moment. ugh that is going to bother me all day now.... I don't remember it being called that but maybe that is the common name. Its a total of 33 watts so I guess since its a ten gallon that would make it 3.3 wpg? Thanks for the comment!
