Hi, i have just recently bought a rena life 200.It came with two t8 bulbs,which i have changed over to the Glo range bulbs one is a Glo life the other is Glo Aquaglow.I have put reflectors on each bulb.I am not running a co2 system yet and the lights are on for 8 hours.I used tropica subsate,in which fine sand is placed.I dose tpn+ 5ml every other day

the plants which i have used are cryo wendii,echino orasis some amazon swords plus vallis

water changes are every week 25liters

the question is the way am running this is there anyrthing more i can do to improve things

thats all up to you, if there is algae then you will need to increase dosing, but the plan you have seems to be a very good low tech one.
