Alright. I didn't see that. I still don't know if that's good enough to support a nem in a 55G tank considering the depth of those tanks. I guess you could get away with it.. but my guess is, it will probably move around until it finds its "spot" and that could be risking him finding a spot in the powerhead.. which wouldn't be good. :s

Hmmm....sounds like someone needs to learn to read Zer0...JK. IMO, 5x54w T5 HO is enough for a nem. I'm guessing that by bubble he means BTA which are a lower light requiring nem and don't need as much light as others, but they still need a good deal of light, but that is plenty. The depth of the tank isn't much of a factor in his case, most 54w T5 HO bulbs cut off a 20", a 55g is 21" tall, but with sand I'm guessing that the depth is only 19" or so and nems tend to be in the mid-upper regions of the tank. HTH.
Any questions? Feel free to PM me.

Is there anything I can do at this point or should I just wait and see what happens to it?
