    I really think your plants need more light. A lot more. That looks like only 15 watts. A ten gallon is hard to work with unless you have several, so then you can have a few 4 foot shop lights over them. Take the lid off, and then you can take out the fan, and then you don't have to take time to wire it up.

    I think my guy is FINNALLY making leafs it has been months the neps are growing much faster I will finnally get my first leaf. Maybe they got stressed from barerooting ? I have 2 fixtures just like yours but I am instead gowing to use compact flourscent lights that put out 100 wat equivalant and will use 3 for my 10 gallon tank. I may use 1 of those small fixtures just like you have with my 3 compact warm flourscent lights. I am almost done other than I need 1 more socket to wire,some reflecters and mylar. I am going to get a fan by going to the thrift shop then buying a really cheap computer then pop that open for 2 fans. For the compact lights they will stick out of the wood top so I will have to make a box to hide the reflecters and cording (my mom is estetics,she buys nice pottery for my windowsill cps )
