    Aquarium growing.

    Been out for a while due to health and have not been able to get the larger system going that I had planned but still have hopes for this year. What I do have going is a few in the top of my aquarium. It's a 120 gallon tank with a 17x28 inch tote that just about fits perfect on one side. Inside of that are coffee containers filled with clay pellets and lit from above with a Sunpaq Orbit CFL system. Right now have a jalapeno, a ghost pepper, an as yet unidentified pepper(hadn't marked properly) and an eggplant. Jalapeno has about 6 peppers on it now, the UP has just started to bloom as has the eggplant. Will see what happens.[attachment=0:14zwpg5i]Growin crazy.jpg[/attachment:14zwpg5i]

    Re: Aquarium growing.

    Thanks David, hoping so too. The system is 130 watts, used it before when I had a planted tank. Peppers are flowering like crazy, the problem was pollination. Since the room is temporarily my wife's office she was not keen on bringing in bees so had to do it by hand.
