Really? So even the 55 watt 30" compact fluorescents are short on the ends like the regular fluorescents? So then I should probably plant the glosso in the middle front if that is where the light hits more? I don't mind low light in places, since some of the fish I am considering like shadowy parts, and I'll try to keep low light plants in those areas.
As an update to the Eco-Complete question, I succesfully low bid on a 40 lb bag of the stuff on eBay. I paid $9 for the bag, but I'm getting killed on shipping, like $29. All total it's $38, which is about $10 cheaper than if I bought 2 20 lbs bags at Dr Fosters, after shippiing.
