    There was a nice evening sun that came through my window to shine on the tank for a few minutes. Unfortunately I did not get set up in time. On top of that my camera skill is that of a monkey.

    The photo was after the lights had gone off.

    Thanks folks. I dont use them on most tanks because in Florida we dont really need them very much. Nice and easy to pull out and put away for 6-10 months. The water is always warm :)

    NICE! That Glosso is crazy!! Awesome looking! Do you prune it regularly or do you let it go and mow it down and restart it? Wayyy thicker than ive ever been able to get it :)
