Yeah the stock light won't do that well for very long - maybe to start with you will be fine, for shrooms, softies, palys.

 

What's your budget? Aquastyle kits are cheap, or a BoostLED is only around $70-80

What's happenin' with this tank? Updates? :)

Here is the deal^^^

but here is a short summary...

Ordered the tank on the 13th from jbjnanocube.com... Pretty sure i got screwed on that! so i ordered another one from Dr.fosterandsmith... That tank is on back order!!!!!!!! (but i love fosters so its ok :D ) so now i have no wait for a while and see if that one tank even comes and if that other gets off back order.... Lets just say I am not a happy camper at this point! I am very impatient with ordering and waiting this long really sucks.

 

This was my last online order. I do not have any debt or credit card so I was giving my Girlfriend cash and she ordered the stuff for me... Never again unless i know its certain and I can actually get what i want at a reasonable time frame for shipping... OR unless i really want it :P

 

So this build is on hold for the moment and I am not ok with that! LOL

Update!

So here is more info on my plan! I am having two picos side by side both with different stocking plans... I will get a 24" fixture to put over them... LED or T5... Most likely LED if i can order from Aquastyle. I will make a diagram in Sketchup now so you all can see my idea!
