    hi Byron could you advise me on ligting for my new setup? i have a 15W bio globe in at the moment but feel i may need more. the plantings are, Amazon swords, anubias nana, hairgrass and java moss. i will be adding some java fern and various moss species in the near future as well as some microsporum tenerum, i think thats the right spelling. i thought i should add at least another 15 watt. the tank is a low tech setup and is 70litres. thanks

    ps thought i should add that the substrate is black fine fluorite that is capping palm fibre peat soaked in a solution of chemincult, a hydroponics fertilizer. the fertilizers are then added via the roots rather than in the water column though ferts can still be added to the water column which i may do to give the mosses and hair grass a kick start.

    windfire, I have PM'd my response. Byron.

    Thank you for taking the time to write your 4 part series on plants. I have been "planning" in my mind a freshwater tank in the near future. It has been over a decade since I last did live plants, so I have been following your threads and taking everything in. Your summary really helps.

    I just wanted to say, you've been a great help to me on this website and always have a way of explaining things so clearly.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
