    Lol Judi, this goes to show what you can do with plants from other tanks and more scaping skills than I have!

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Man you are really making strides like Insane Bolt.. Looks really good. Love to see how the ammonia subsides in the substrate.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    I've planted all the plants from my 15 litre tank (now decomissioned and for sale) so the back has been thickened up considerably (lots of Hygrophila polysperma to take over!) In the process of doing this I drained 30% of the water and refilled it. I don't really need this tank to cycle as I'll be moving the cannister filter over when I move the stock over. I'll take an ammonia reading later to see if it's dropped at all or still leeching. And, of course, I'll post a photo update.

    I've been looking at the lights on this tank. There are four T5s at 54W each. That's 216W. A bit much? I'm used to crap lights! How long would you have them on for each day? I'm thinking 5-6 hours only at the moment to see how that goes.

    I would go with 6hrs each day on a timer to make sure its during the time YOU want.

    Ok cool, thanks. I'll be setting both sets of lights to come on at 5.45pm and go off at 11.45pm. That way I get good viewing time in the evenings.

    Sounds great to me. I am looking at a lot of the same. I have mine come on at 6pm and that gives my fish 30min to wake up before I come home at 645. Then off at midnight.

    Doesn't look a whole lot different after adding more stem plants. I've basically thickened it all up at the back.
