    Well, I'm using LEDs so the wattage on those units is 45 each for a total of 90 watts of LEDs... Not exactly sure what that equates to when it comes to "normal" bulbs.

    I thought it went off wattage emitted from the bulb not equivalents. hmm. im at 80w total and plan to go halide pennants when we move in a few months. itll work its close to what I got now.

    just PM me when you trim again,please.

    I'm not sure. For some reason I thought LED wattage was measured differently then bulbs but I could be wrong.

    Will do. I end up trimming every couple weeks (when I don't dose my tank). If I start dosing with Excel again I have to trim it weekly.

    are those some of the originals I sent ya? If so, they are doing very well!
    Did the Ludwigia Repens loose some of their redness? or is it just the lighting?

    Either way, your definitely at the jungle point! Haha!

    So the angelfish are going bye bye...what are you putting in there next? Or are you just gonna keep it plants only?

    Yep. I think it's just the picture, they are still pretty red.

    Just Endler's I guess.

    Driftwood must be on the menu tonight.

    Not a great picture but I thought it was neat that I could get 5 of them in one shot.

    Well, I'm not sure but apparently that huge water change I did today sparked some romance between to of the angels. They seem to be paired off and are keeping the others tucked back behind the plants.
