Haha the plants have taken over! It's the halogens I see.
What all is in your tank as far as for the plants? That's the look I want to get, plants everywhere.

oh if you already have the light I would try it just watch your temp, may have to use a fan while the light is on.

A fan on the water or the light itself?

on the water, to help keep it cool. I run clip fans on my reef tanks and they make a noticable diffrence, just have it set to come on with your light. You will evaporate alot more water, I would try it without the fans first and see what your temp fluctuations are. If it is too much then use the fans.

Okay it'll most likely not have any fish for a while just plants. So I'll try it without fans and if it gets to high I'll add 2 clip fans on each side. I think this plus raising the light will help the tank.
