p!CoTopE 3g pArT 2

Shut down my 3g SW pictope reef now it's empty. I'm going to start a planted tank with it now. Looks like I'll be using some eco-complete from my main tank might even put a little organic potting soil under it. I'm going to use a desk lamp for the light probably with a spiral bulb. Ideas?
