Really nice Marty , you'll get good growth with the 4 T5's , nothing more satisfying than 6ft of lovely clear water !!! 

Thanks:

The other half needing to do some walking today so perfect excuse to go for a walk round LFS see what I did there there was a gap in the middle of tank that annoyed me so picked up a plant for there and some faster growing ones for rear to help consume the nutrients ect also picked up 12 black neon tetra to go with the cardinals and add some contrast.

Before


After


I think that fills that gap nicely


Some pics of the neons
can also see some fast growing green plants that have been added right at back

And some extra plants visible to right here

Never thought I would be very green fingered with plants but everything seems to be going in the right direction a bit different to a reef tank
