    The plants you are talking about are called aponogetons. The common types you find in such bulb packs are fairly easy to grow, but still will need good lighting. What is the wattage and color temperature(6000k, 2800k, etc) of your lights?

    YES, that name rings a bell...to be honest. I have no idea on the wattage and color temp of the LEDs, will have to check this evening after work...they are built into the hinged lid of the hood, that came with the "kit"...I'd really like a brighter light, but dont know much about lighting a tank...

    Ammonia = 0 (OR CLOSE, FIRST TIME!)
    Nitrate = 10.0
    Nitrite = 2.0

    Some different results, I'm hoping positive ones

    Awesome! Looks like that ammonia eating bacteria is doing its thing and the nitrite eating bacteria is getting a good start too. Bet that feels good after the tedium of the last couple of weeks huh?

    Good morning CL,
    Yes, I was fired up to finally start getting some positive results from the daily water changes...I know it takes time, but I'm not the most patient person you'll ever meet!

    Good morning all,
    Still have not determined the wattage and color temp of the LED light that came as part of the tank "kit", but it may not matter...there seems to be a short in the wiring somewhere, because sometimes the lights don't want to come one, you have to keep playing with the switch...so, I'm thinking about getting another light...any suggestions from you guys for a light set up for a 10 gallon tank?...the LED one we have now is built into the hinged lid of the hood that came with the kit...I would like to keep the tank mostly covered, like it is now, except for the opening where the filter is hanging on the back...

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated...
