Yes I did , Thanks foe asking,
I went with 4ft light fixtures, I hung them about a foot above the tanks . Used one full spectrum and a aquarium bulb. the plants have never looked better. Thanks Steve

I see watersprite, the rest is not clear...I'm guessing either frogbit or waterlettuce. Hard to say from the pic.

Well, I see the pic, Steve. Very Happy  I don't know what kind of plants they are; but now I have a kink in my neck from looking sideways at it.  Razz
