Hi Downshift and Wendyjo. I don't know if the LEDs will support the plants, but the manufacturer says that the light should work. Big Als Rep is trying a planted setup using 3 of the LED lights, but I thought I'd try my experiment with 1. So far, the plants are growing.
I am thinking of putting endler fry into the tank but not until I understand the filter better. The way that the filter works seems to be that water is sucked into the back part of the tank through a small hole in the acrylic divider, and then it is sucked through dense foam into another area where the pump is, and it flows back into that tank from that area. Unlike an AquaClear or Liberty filter, there is no intake tube. Just that little hole. The dense filter foam presses very firmly up against the hole, so I think that it would be fry safe or as fry safe as putting a foam prefilter on an AquaClear. But as I haven't tried the tank with any fish yet, let alone fry, I will start with one adult endler. I'm going to let the tank be with just plants for awhile, though, to see how the plants do.
