Hi. Good work on the 10s.
I'm considering a 30 ltr version as my son will be gutted if we don't have a couple of small fish? Maybe i can get one of these too?
I am interested on your view of the standard lights in the kit, 6 watts? I can see that you have changed the second one for the dry start. Are you planning on using c02? Oh, how long have you been doing the dry start for? Good luck. Simon

The dennerle stock kit is superb, in my pics those are cheap Chinese lights :)

The dry start one will stay emersed, I actually prefer plants grown that way :)

No co2 used, moderate lighting :)

Thats great to hear. Thank you.
I also like the plants emersed or slightly swampy looking.
As far as I am aware most of the plants we purchase are grown in such conditions. I was actually considering setting up like this for a few weeks (dry start) and literally drip filling the aquarium to minimise the shock and stir up that can sometimes happen when filling with a saucepan etc!! Do people do this already? no sure?
Anyway thanks for the reply.
Simon.

Dripping in, if you have the patience is a great idea; lots of other people do the strainer method, but whatever works for you is best!

Dry start is the way forward, I've started a new aquascape but I've used true aquatic plants so I can't dry start from the get go this time
