This is the tank about a week ago. Almost 3 months have past with the new lighting. This tank can now grow plants at a considerable rate instead of just keeping them alive like it use to. It has always had a flourite substrate, no ferts of any kind though. There are a ton of cherry shrimp in there now too.
I had this hood wired with LED's for a little while. I bought a phone charger from China for $2 to replace the converter I had been temporarily using. Well their was a considerable difference between the chargers advertised specs and its real specs in terms of milliAmps and volts, which should be too big a surprise I guess.... It will still work I think, but I need more resistors which I will have to buy. I haven't really looked at radio shacks prices, but eventually I will get tried of the phone charger lying on my floor....
This is back when I had the LED's on it. They did a good job, but cameras are never all that great at picking up blue light.
