    i feel so stupid....i knew that, but its always on for 4 hours....okay, well, i just changed the timer to start from 11:00 to 7:30pm i think that should be good. Im a little concerned about it being to hot though, no one will be home. i did take out the bulb a while ago, mind you it was on for 4 hours at this time, and it was slightly warm, would it be safe to run it for that long? im guessing so

    It should be fine. If you are concrened just put some rubber spacers around it if its sitting flush on the top of the tank. You could probably use pennies too.

    do you have an 8k or an 8000k? thats the light temp. (not physical temp) 6000K-6500K is ideal for plants with the reduction of algae. plants use blue and green hues for their photosynthesis. so for plants a lower temp would be better, now the problem, algae LOVES blue light. the more blue there is the more algae. so a 6000K (which simulates sun light) would give a great mix of the hues :P

    i thought it would be okay, thanks for the tips :) umm i have an aqueon 8000k 15w t8 18" preheat, so a 6000k would be ideal then, providing i have it lit 8 hours or so? and since i know practically nothing about the lights, is there even a 6000k 18" avaliable?

    ^^^ lol ^^^

    Thats why I suggested to try the Java fern. Very low light plant that doesn't look too bad at all.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.
