I agree, I also think that it look great! I am also still following! I have just been super busy this week (again, lol). I was going to comment last night, but I didn't get around to it.

I went to buy replacement bulbs a few weeks ago. LFS didn't have any 10k so I bought a 18k. From what I understand its just more of a blue light. You'll get less algae growth and it looks soo much better. I'll be replacing the 10k bulbs with 18k in the fixture I'm buying after Christmas.

Yeah I understand that but I got the tank because of it's space lengthwise. So I thought I could add a few fish as long as the bio-load kept up with it. I like firefish too but aren't the aggressive?

Thanks. I was just about to order the ATI Aquablue specials which is 15k. So an 18k and Actinic? Is that too much blue?

I don't think so. Its what I currently have. Firefish aren't the least bit aggressive.

Good to know. Do you have a picture of the 18k bulb on your tank?

I dont think they are agressive at all. Maybe a type of goby?? A yellow watchman would be the best type. For another "swimming" fish i would probably get a type of cardnal fish. Orange striped or orange spotted would probably work.

I looked at that canister filter and there was something about it that I heard that deterred me. i think it was too weak if remember correctly.

Lol that was the exact opposite problem they had in the reviews about how it was so strong it destroyed his planted tank
