Layout is beautiful very similar to the style I'm doing on my next project 10g. gonna do a moss "tree" with HC as ground cover.

a bit off-topic but since actinic lights were discussed, are the pink freshwater lights counted in the wattage calculation or does it only make the tank look better much like the blue actinic?

The pink freshwater light bulbs are 'supposed' to have peaks in the the blue and red areas of the spectrum that plants use for photosynthesis, without the yellow/green peak like normal bulbs. So I believe that they are counted in the wattage calculation.

I've had HC carpet in a 5g and hairgrass in a 3g with only a 13w 10000k cf bulb so it could still be possible with 9w but you might have to put the light closer which will probably increase the temperature

update: just filled the paintball tank yesterday and received the regulator and adapter in the mail today. yay!

zoomed filter's been cycled for bacteria colony since i hooked it up to my 20g last week. kept that tank clean and clear pretty good. so that's ready to hook up to the 5g.

HC i got from nokturnal, split in half for grow out tank and this one. grow out HC not doing very good. emersed propagation seems more complicated than i thought. should have put all in this tank instead.

moss tree has been glued together and ready for boiling.

will put up pics once set up. wish me luck!

PS: nvm. just googled the answer.

Good luck!

Btw, from what I have been reading HC can do good under low and medium light conditions if it has enough CO2. Looks like it is a CO2 hog.
