    My wendtiis are doing great <3 I'm adding CO2 to my tank and updating my lighting to flourescent spectrum 6500k bulbs! Hopefully they'll grow a tad quicker ;)

    What are some other good types of plants? You seem to pick them very well!

    I think the spectrum of the bulb plays a big deal in the growing factor as well. 3 watts to the gallon is a lot, yet most plants wont grow with these bulbs! I do agree flourescent looks better. It has a more 'daylight' look to it.

    Same user name?

    Well it is a 10 gallon. I will find fluorescent. Then I will have 30 watt fluorescent which should be good for a 10 gal!

    Because the hood says don't go over 15 watts... :/ I would've loved to have the 25 bulbs though

    I am confused on lighting. I have (2) 15 watt bulbs so does that mean I have 30watts or do you just count single bulb wattage?

    I bought 25 watt bulbs today but forum members advised me not to for safety reasons.

    If I have a total of 30 watts I think I would fare well. I will try and find 15 watt fluorescent bulbs. Then I should get a good amount of light. I will leave the light on about 10 hours a day.

    Thanks if you can answer my question!!
