they're safe, sometimes they make the water a little cloudy for a day but I never had that problem.

Awesome! Hopefully I can find a bulb that wil work in my tank to give it the right light.

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

I forgot to mention that it like's deeper gravel and has a fairly large root system, so make sure the gravel around it is at least 2" deep or even 3" around the bulb.

Thanks for the tip!

Color temp...6500Kelvin
>1W per gallon

My lily grew fine under medium to low light and no substrate, just tied to a rock. I just splash a few drops of liquid fertilizer whenever I remember.

I accidentally broke it into smaller pieces during a water change. Now the pieces are floating around and sprouting.
