Why thank ya little.
I stocked the tank with RCS - some of which ended up as food for Angelo but look...
As far as the tech part - for a while I got away with 26 watts on this 7.8g with 3 weeks of minimal CO2 (the fluval passive kit) and one week without.
I've added a 25 watt CFL for a total of ~50 watts now and have also installed a solenoid regulated 5lb CO2 tank. It's hooked up to a nano diffuser and pumps CO2 1 hour before the lights come on through their turn-off time.
As you can see in the pic above, I've had a little bit of algae growth and may have to dial it back a bit.
Lighting wise, my next plan of action is to keep the original two 13W'ers on for the 8-10 hours a day, with the 25 watt turning on for 4 hours in the middle to simulate a high noon effect.
