Newly Setup NPT

I've been discouraged for alot of times now for having to redo my NPT tank since I always fail and this time I hope my effort will be paid off, also the money that I spent towards these plants are just ridiculous.

Here's 3 of my NPT. The first one I just finished doing. The 2nd one has been up for about 3 weeks now and the last one has been up since last year of dec.

Dunno what's wrong with the last one cause it seems like the plant has been suffering a stunted growth. I kept changing the bulbs to get the right amount. Right now it has 75w with 3200k and the package says its cool light. it looks like it's soft light though.

with 75W you can reach 6500k with that first one. I want to see that first tank when it's grown.

The 1st and 2nd one is sharing a T8 flourescent with 6500k. The 3rd one is the one that I'm having troubles right now. And for the 1st and 2nd one, I'll be installing DIY CO2 by tomorrow.

usually when there are floating plants, sometimes it casts a shadow on plants and the plant doesnt receive enough light, but that does not seem to be the case from that picture.

Oh, I guess that's a good thing. Well I'm using 2 T8 flourescent bulbs. I guess that helps?

hope all goes well! 2nd tank could use a different compositional arrangement.

LOL! I know right, I was just throwing things here and there for now on that one. I'm waiting for the plants to outgrow the tank and start from there.

I love the scap on the first one! Looks almost like a traditional aquascape.
