    Yeah I will ensure that my last will and testament specifies that with the open casket I have an open fishroom day at the same time ... wait that might make me a target !!!

    Playing with a yeelight .... some flows and then the 2 14 watt grow-lights overwhelm it while it stays in the same colour flow cycle.

    Nice guppy disco your throwing there. Seems like the fish aren't even fazed with the change in lighting.

    Been playing with yee light and taking pics ... could be interesting to get a better response from the camera matched to the light on the tank without blasting the tank with loads of white light.

    Getting fish photos is difficult with most fish tank lighting. It takes me time to get nice shots...

    On TASA a goldfish lover was asking about java fern walls ... thought I would play with and add a few twists to an experiment.

    Now that is a very good idea. Planting seeds in my mind in doing something similar but doing it at the water surface to get submersed and emersed growth going

    Week later not much has changed.

    [​IMG]

    But clearly we have growth in this low tech low light no CO2 tank.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have some open spots, probably want to look at moving some more buce into this tank - will be interesting to see how things adapt going from Red Blue light to this.

    Then ...

    As for the wall experiment .. all seems to be going just fine. Yes white was not the best idea ;-)

    [​IMG]

    Nothing is dying [​IMG]

    And some things are doing rather well in the tank ... but I think it is time to replace the T5's - they might be at the heart of some algae in the tank.

    So what light do you think is working the best ... some are spots and not linear over the entire tank length.
