One thing about plants...when happy they reproduce really fast and you find yourself needing more tanks....lol.....
LOL, I love the idea of needing more tanks, hubby not so much..ha ha. The light I am using is 7800k, but the CRI is only 11..My understanding is that the CRI should be a lot higher than that...so, I'm still not sure on the light. I'm leaving it on about 10-12 hours a day. The filter is running on low, at water level, but I removed the carbon from the it, so it is basically just the cartridge with the batting on it..is this okay? I don't want to deplete CO2, but I don't want algae either..so much to remember.
