definitely looks like they love it! im just asking because im getting ready to upgrade my lighting soon which will bump me hopefully to atleast 2-3 watts per gallon which will let me get some moderte light plants which i think baby tears fall under. is it like a florurecent a compact or a incadecent? and what is the name brand of the light so i can find one for myself~ :D

the addition of CO2 is far more important then the power of the bulb, with around 2watts per gallon and CO2 injection you will be able to grow pretty much anything.

if you just up the power and add no extra CO2 or "liquid carbon" then you will probably just grow lots of algae.

dude, is there not algae in some of the above pics?

hair/fuzz algae is caused by CO2 levels that are too low for the power of the bulb and or LOW nutrient levels.

I have a little algae in all my tanks. Makes a great treat for a lot of different fish, shrimp, and snails!
