Nice start, skinns. Unfortunately, with the minimal lighting that you have, that many of the stem plants in that tank will begin to disentegrate in a month or two. It really isn't enough light to grow anything but moss, Anubias, and some crypts.

Hope you get some better lighting soon for those plants!

I know, and I can't stand the fact. I do have some stand up floor lamps on each sside with 20 watt floursent swirl lights in them. I believe there is 2 on the right and 1 on the left. I'm hoping I can keep the tank happy until approbiate lighting is applied.

Any suggestions on the layout?

oh by the way, your name icon reminds me of a documenty I just watched called "Billabong Odyesse" - Big Wave surfin.. I found it amazingly interesting.

Skinns,

Invest on an ah retrofit to turn the 20 W strip into a 55W CF, with their great reflectors, and it will make all the difference in the world. It shouldn't break your bank, either!
