Just a couple things. The wisteria and water sprite will change drastically as they change to their submerged form from their emersed forms that they are in now. Watch for the new leaf structure and trim off the old when you geta lot of new growth. Remove the old growth also at it will eventually die off and could cause water problems but only after it has a significant amount of new growth.
The lighting look more than sufficient, but there is a shadow on the right side that might cause some of them not to do so well. If this is intentional then just ignore me. lol
What type of light do you have on there?
Keep the pictures coming, it will be very interesting to watch the tranformation as the plants change to their submerged forms and to watch it all fill in.
Oh thats a great tip. I will be watching closely. I noticed the darker spot too and its due to the slightly off center placement of the light in the hood. Since I took the pics I taped some foil to the opposite side of the hood and it is helping. Thank goodness the lower light plants happened to be on the right side. ( I didn't plan it that way) I am using a compact fluorescent 15 w. I do have a 18w available but I didnt want to over do it.
