18w - 2 x 9.

Where did you get that? I might want to change my lights.

Yes. it's definitely enough. 18w for a 1 footer is on the high side. Calculating, it makes about 6 watts per gallon, if your tank is 32 x 22 x 22. Make sure you have enough carbon dioxide or dose with seachem excel. Else, make sure you have good stock of algae eating snails or fish...


Anyway this is what my fish tank looks like now...
From my blog page...

Set up on 9th August 2006'.
P1020223
Late August 2006' I think... reminds me of a Savannah

P1020298
Mid September 2006.... added some stem plants...it's becoming a Forest

Yeah, same here. I gave away some tennellus plants last week, and boy! I pulled out one and the rest of the glosso and other plants connected to it all were pulled out as well!

I like the jungle look better....

Anyway starting on another nano soon. Let's compare notes after this.
