    Hey Chris,

      Got them off Ebay, whilst they aren't aquatic plant specific as such, they are 6500K, which roughly approximates the colour of sunlight on an overcast day. I have used 6500K t8's in the past and a 6500K compact fluorescent, they were quite good too.

          Great tank, love it.

          I have a tall tank 70cm, which plant can I use if I put the tank outdoor using 2Tones' substrate?

            Outdoors? In full sunlight, just about anything you want, but i'd be careful about getting sunlight on any side thats not the top, so blacked out sides and back and front away from the direction of the sun.

                Easy peasy!

                What do you like?!
                This is my list, google some of them to get a feel for what kind of plants you like and don't like, most are pretty rare, but some of the common ones are really good looking. Most of them are visible in the tank, i think and should be easy to match up. If you wan't me to put a name to any of the ones in the photo just let me know.

                    Cheers Bardus!

                    Incase anyone is wondering, the reason the angelfish doesn't fit in with the others is because he wasn't intended to be in the tank, i adopted him from someone closing down a tank. He'll be a good excuse for me to start a new tank though!

                      Hi Chris, thanks for the list. Though they are still too complex for me, but I start recognise a few name, lol...

                      Could you help to name the small leaf plants in front of the angel?
                      And further a little bit, the two touching the top .

                      It is good to give me fish shop's name as well
                      Thanks..

                              The more tanks I see lit up with these LED lights, the more I want to use them on my next tank. Are you having any algae problems with them?

                                None at all. I'm actually having trouble keeping my iron and macro ferts up with the plants that chug through them. I'm actually thinking i really need to go compressed CO2.
