Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping. Glad you found us and joined.

I have moved this thread to the "Meet the Commun ity" section which is more appropriate for introductions.

Welcome to the forums!

I also have a fluval edge, beautiful tanks arent they? However, for planted aquaria, it has been, by far, the most frustrating tank i have ever worked with. How are your plants doing? My light could not get my plants to grow properly so i had to switch mine out with LEDs.

This was going to be my first question in the community. I have only had the plant in for a few days. It seems it is reaching for the light but I was not sure what would be best.

On another note the lights are kinda of unflattering so I may switch them out anyways. So maybe some daylight led replacements may be better all around.

the original halogens were not the right spectrum for me, i had to switch to LEDs rated at 6500k, but despite the better spectrum, you are really limited with MR11 lights. Looking at your picture, im guess the light loses a lot of its brightness when the tank is filled? (mine is currently a terrarium, not filled yet). The LEDs are growing my plants pretty well, but i have no idea how it will fare after the tank is filled.

Well in the photo the Texas Holey Rock is taking up most of the light from the flash. It's not bad when its full its just very yellow and like I said un flattering almost a yellow or manila haze.

What lights did you get? Are they a bright white or a sunlight? It could be that a blue tint may look best.
