hi all,

i recently started a new planted tank(about a week back) with rocks as a hardscape.

tank: 30" x18" x 15" with rotala rotundifolia,echinodorus tenellas,A.reinki,blyxa japonica and hair grass.

ADA AS II,bactor 100,power sand and Bio rio filtering media. and the lighting is 70w MH from OSRAM HQI TS 70/D.

Now my question is the lighting which i had is sufficient or not because it looks lilbit dull to my eyes.

please help me in this matter

thanks in advace

Well the fact that it looks dull to YOUR eyes doesn't say much. It's all about the plants. I'm using 70 Watts of T5 on a 32 x 18 x 24 and i can grow every plant I want. So 70 Watt sof MH on a even smaller tank should be more than enough.
