Here are my specs right now...
45 Gallon Tall Aquarium, 23 inches tall(Probably 20ish with soil to the bottom)
2X Current USA Satellite LED plus lights (PAR value of 28 at 18'' for one)
ADA aqua-soil new amazonia
I also have a pressurized co2 injection system.(Aquatek mini regulator)

I am wondering what my chances are of growing a carpet of Dwarf Baby tears are? Everything in the tank so far is growing great but are mostly beginner plants that require medium to low light. I'm mostly concerned that because of the height of my tank that my lighting is getting too low at the bottom.

I have one sat+ on 12 long and almost want more light at 8" depth for my hc. Remember those readings they list for par are 18" directly under the lights.

I have one on a 30 gal cube... 21in deep... 18 in to substrate in front... 12in to substrate in back. Tried to grow dwarf baby tears and it didn't work. Now with two i'm not sure. Honestly I say by one clump and try. Let us know how it goes. I'm waiting on ecoxotics new more powerful light to put as a second on the tank, but I may just get a second led+ because they do grow plants quite well. My tank is on my profile.
