What were the bulbs called? So that I could ask the store :) please and thank you.

And I know! The guy even gave my 6 RCS free for buying stuff from him (cholla wood, the plants, and $3 worth of MTS)

I took a pic of the bulbs so I could remember what I got if I ever needed to replace them

The making of a sorority in a 25 gallon cube tank

If the link works you can go to my journal and see the plant growth I have had in the last two months with these bulbs.
I actually just updated today, so the last pics on the last page are super current lol.

Awesome! But my hood says to only use tubular bulbs, so would the spirals be okey?

Finally put the substrate back in and have everything clear again! Took two days total for the water to clear up, so I am a little scared to rearrange anything right now. It is strange because this hasn't happened before in any of my dirt+sand tanks. Oh, well. Anyways, the girls are all in and reset their hierarchy. They are all happy now.

Now pictures!

I will snap some new pics of the girls later today. My parakeet is being needy.
Oh, I will also be getting some new girls this Saturday (If they are on sale. Strapped for cash )

Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to getting that dirt gunk off of the sand cap?

Your tank is looking good again, Lux is so pretty exploring the tank in that last pic.
Did you get the bulbs or find a lower watt version of them?

I couldn't find them at Lowes. I may have to ask my dad to order them online. Right now they have a 18 watt light strip.

I did a major rearrange of the tank a few days ago, but I might do another later today to add more sand. They seem to be getting along better, so I may just use the plants as background cover, so that I can see them swimming around the full front of tank. Still no nipped fins or missing scales! Hooray!
They also swarm to the feeding corner when I get up in the morning. I had to start cupping them to eat since the guppies steal all their food. (Poor slow girls)

That's a lot of working having to cup them at feeding time. My girls are big pigs. Two out of my eight will jump out of the water to eat there food. I have to be careful or they will end up on the floor. I usually feed frozen and use a turkey baster. I just put the end of it in the water full of there food and they all come and snatch out there share, of course I only have one male guppy in there at the moment so they don't have much computation. I think yours will get the idea of eating quick over time.
Sorry you couldn't find the bulbs, there should be a close equivalent to them at your Lowe's if not the same ones. Even Wal-Marts around here have a version of them, you might check there.

I really don't mind cupping. The girls know that it means food now, so they swim right in. It's cute.
I might just get some incandescents since that is all I can seem to find.
