    I'm amazed I received 30 plants from Bayless fish (Cory) and not one snail or any other critters noticed in 6 days. The plants are all growing and not a brown leaf or soggy leaf (yet). I have a 29 gal with 60 watts, CO2 and add flourish with water changes. (I know I need more wattage but have to wait for $ flow to increase alittle) LOL. Have some beautiful red color plants guess I need to add iron. Will take pics soon. (hopefully today).

    I doubled my wattage for under 15 bucks, I am researching LED wattage and might be starting to make them using old housings. I also added spot lights with bigger CFL bulbs in the 150w range for my red lud's and red crypts, they looked amazing, then my daughter shattered my bulb. havnt replaced but kicker lights can be an option to if you arent too concerned about a spotlight on the tank as well
