I actually have had the lights in that tank off all day (dealing with a stressed-out frog who was in an accident) so I haven't messed with it so not to disturb the invalid resident. I have a pair of the standard sized bulbs of that type/size that I have around for my house lights - I'm going to try them on for size before buying anything, and go from there!
I got my Life-Glo 2 tube today and put it in the larger tank. WOW! Amazing difference - the light looks gorgeous! I can't wait to see how my plants are affected by it.
I also got my flourish, and a quick question about that for you all: Should I add it to fresh water when I do my water changes, or dump it directly into the tank? It's a 30 gallon, so I'll only need 2.5 ml, but the directions say 'once or twice a week' Should I just start with once weekly and go from there? It seems like a lot, but I don't know anything about it! The tank is planted, but not densely. There are 4 or 5 'bunches' of hornwort, 3 small java ferns, and one sprig of anacharis. . . and only two Mollies at the moment, as far as fish go.
