    What about a nice betta? I love having them in a community tank.

    bettas are from asia right? well i think they are; when i hear they come from rice paddies Asia comes to mind. If you did get one I'd go with a halfmoon; they're just my favorite ones

    Well I just noticed that the new lighting is penetrating father down the glass than the old by a factor of 2. I am very intrigued to see how the plants react.

    Huge difference! Very cool.

    Is this just for hobby or do you sell your plants as well?

    Mainly been a hobby, but I do sell the cuttings to the LFS for store credit when we have one open and they are willing to take the plants.

    Thanks, I can already see more red on the plants. I have 2 6500K bulbs on the way. i will replace one 5100K and the Actinic White with them and see how I like the look.
