Here is a better picture of the tank. It isn't all washed out like the one above.


tsunami I have my fertz in the mail and I just ordered a CO2 system. It will probably be a week before I get it in though. I hope things are fine until then.

What fish do you have in there? I saw some puffers and maybe some tetra's, but couldn't quite tell what the others were.

Big Red-
There's nothing like a properly-lit tank, but...I second Carlos' concern: watch out for algae!!!
The few plants you have will take off like mad, but with lighting like that, so will the algae, unless you put in LOTS more plants, enough to out-compete ( and therefore, out-grow) the algae. DO NOT WHATEVER YOU DO add more ferts or any co2 UNTIL you add more plants. And, the faster-growing, the better. Anacharis, hornwort, val, most stem plants (hygro is really pretty) work best.
Good luck!

In the future when you add more plants and the bulbs need to be replaced, look into the 9325K GE lights. They will balance the color, and get rid of the yellow tint. The GE makes red plants really stand out.
