    I have a really large tank. And I use 4 flouroscent tubes. 3350 lumens each so thats about 13 400 lumens

    Another question from me then..

    Is that enough? And Can I put the plants about 60 cm under the lights with that strength? Or do I have to put 2 more up?
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Oh alright... maybe its just the way that one is... baby binatas already started turning red, and that one is just white. but still makes dew... maybe its adelae alba lol.
    btw I just examined it close, and found that it sprouted 3 babies from the roots...

    Oh, from the D. adelae? That plant constantly creates more of itself by spreading through the soil. They've pretty much taken over my classic terrarium

    yes Im aware of that, thats why i planted it in the corner, so the others will have time to make their own colonies and not be overrun by the vicious lance carrying adelae!
    thanks for the help again.
