    My apologies on the pictures. I've been in a photography class for the last few weeks, and don't feel like re-sizing/up-loading and all that crap. Besides, if you have seen the planted tanks in the stores that pack a bunch of plants in them, then you have seen my tank.


    I peeked in on this thread to see how long I let my fish go before feeding them. Turns out to be over 4 weeks and look like they would have happily made it 4 more.

    My planted tank in the new place. I think I'm going to try one of those 40$ LED bulbs from the local hardware chain... It's just a 60 watt plant bulb now.
    :party-smi

    My wife still doesn't believe me when I tell her that I bought that light for her. :-/

    The tank looks pretty cool! :)

    What happened to the LED fixture you had? I assume it was too high of color temperature? That was about 10,000k. The new light(maybe the shade is messing it up) appears to be more like a 5,000K.

    Eh, the canopy that I made fell and broke when I was doing something with the tank. That resulted in the light sitting on the tank and getting pretty wet. Still works, some of the bulbs are a little rusty looking. The bulb is just called a "spot gro". I'm assuming it is in the 5-6,000 k range.

    How is that Hagen CO2 reactor working for you? I could not get mine to work consistantly and have instead been dosing Flourish Excel...
