Since I'm new here, thought I'd give my observations on new bulbs I introduced into tank 3 days ago.
First off, after reading up on lighting, switched from incandescent bulbs that came with tank to CFL 10 watt, full-spectrum.
Purchased a package of those 'Aponogeton Hybrid' bulbs from the local W-Mart, since the tank is cycled and everyone seems fine.
All four of the bulbs are showing nice shoots after 3 days!
Have read the questions folks have about starting these, so I must have gotten lucky.
( LFS doe not really have any healthy looking plants in the tanks, they seem real busy with all the other pets they sell. " Yea, I sell you some plants, If you want to start a snail colony!". said the young clerk...)
