My first planted tank! I really want to do one that's really heavily planted with cherry shrimp some day, too...

My plants have been growing! I'm thrilled at how fast my anacharis is growing. I keep planting the trimmings. Eventually I know I'll be doing some RAOKs :)

I've just replaced my incandescent bulbs with fluorescent. So my plants should start growing faster now. Right?

Yep! CFLs are soooooooo much better than incandescents. Your plants are going to flourish under the new light. :)

I'm so glad! I've been having a real nitrate problem, too, I was told changing the lighting (and therefore upping plant growth) would help with that.

EDIT: PS - LOVE your profile pic! I had rats, too. For five years. My last one passed last August.
