As my first contribution to the site, I would like to document the process of a 60l Nano I have started recently.
After making a move out of the city, I have had much more time to dedicate to the planning and process of such a tank. The local wooded hills make for perfect...

Substrate: JBL Manado
Light (still coming): TMC GroBeam 600 with controller
Plants: Eleocharis Parvula, Java...
TMC Grobeam 600.
I have a hi tech 125L with these over and a controller so I can dim them. They seem to be very powerful as far as I can tell. I find that I have to run them at 25% max output or I get diatoms -lots of them.
Just interested to know if anyone has done PAR readings on...
