@moneymitch: thanks! I'll come up with the exact dosing for you soon. As for the specs, they should all be up there in the first post.
@Jeffrey: It's actually a 32W but is "equivalent to a 150W metal halide."
I usually have my water level around the mouth of the filter outlet for surface agitation. Sometimes I leave it just above the outlet because it creates a vortex that sucks the film down into the tank. As you might guess, if I leave the level too high, I end up with unsightly protein films.
I just have pond snails in my tank. They used to be a real problem because I was overfeeding but that isn't a problem anymore :)
Edit:: so it looks like I can't edit the first post so I'll add content here:
Day 126 (April 2, 2013)
Added a vinyl paper background. Very subtle difference but it makes the background lighting a lot more even.
Sunset effect LED tape in the back
Expecting a Linea Cup from Anubias of hydrocotyle sp. "japan" as a test run. Will throw some around the smaller/midground rocks. Might have to remove a bit of blyxa to do so. If it grows well, I'll be using Anubias products for my next project after the summer ends.
