I have a 48" dual-bulb T5HO Current USA Nova Extreme fixture in the front and the same fixture but 36" in the back (total of 186W). The carpeting plant is Marsilea hirsuta.

Thanks. It spread quite a bit within the first four weeks. You can see the tank progression in my journal (link in my sig). The tank is only 2 months old now.

Both are 10g tanks and have been rearranged and have more plants/have grown bigger. I can't take pics right now, it's too dark and the tank lights too bright for my camera :P This was about an hour after I first planted them.

Current plants in my tank:

4 Corkscrew Vallisneria
1 Java Fern
2 Swords (I believe)
1 Mystery (mislabelled)
1 Water Wisteria
I was wondering what kind of snail you have there it looks nice I might want one in my betta tank.
