Bah! Up and running....kept the water all nice, gave my filter a light clean.....switched it on......spits out small cabomba fibres. God I hate that plant! Gone for good now though!
Went a bit ambitious with my first plant for the tank....to test the new light as much as anything.... it's ludwigia glandulosa. Fingers crossed!

Nice plant.
How does LED lighting work? I know how many T5/T8 bulbs are needed to grow plants, but I have no clue how much LED is needed to grow properly.

Tbh AK neither do I! That's why I bought the plant in the lfs that had the highest light requirements and I'll see how it goes. Iv also not bought the perfect spectrum of light here iv bought the best house ones basically that I THINK will work..... so this is a bit of trial and error for me, but I had the expensive part of the kit knocking about so thought I right as well!

I am looking forward to your test the LED light you made. Once we get the 75 set up I will be starting on a very heavily planted 45. It will be so cool if your home-made LED lighting system works as you hope. I know mt other half could fashion me something similar toot-sweet, he is very handy.

Love the ideas you have for this tank, plus I am a bit jealous of the puffers. I have loved those for so long and maybe my 3rd tank will be for them. (don't even have tank 1 set up and running yet and I already suffer from MTS)

yeah i know MTS is a real problem. This will be tank 2 set up when its done. I already have tank 3 planned for an amano style aquascape for my kitchen, have drawn the layout, scouted the tank and what will be going in it- and now thinking about tank 4, another smallish one for hillstream loaches. I loved them anyway, then my LFS got them in, then i saw a breeding vid here yesterday and this morning looked up tanks for them etc. haha, its OBSESSIVE!

But right now im just super excited about the puffers.....my LFS that i favour will ring me in the next 3 hours to let me know when/if i can get them soon, OR another good local one will know the same in 4 hours, but i have to ring them. haha.
PRAYING they can order them today as still takes approx 2 weeks till i'll have them!

Yea but in that 2 weeks you can have their new home all nice and perfect for them. So the 2 week wait is a good thing.
