The LED is from a company called RS Electricals.
It comes with an adjustable-clamp base. Could be Chinese from what I can make out.

Got some more male Red Albino Guppies sometime back and quarantined them for 2 weeks now.
Some neons which were in this tank will go to a dear friend to make room.
Running drip acclimatization to get the guppies ready for the display tank.

Good job!!! Its good to see someone so methodical when it comes to right practices. I myself am not one so I appreciate...

The other plant that you have in your tank seems to be Micranthemum umbrosum. Keep up the good show!!!

Thanks for your kind words and in helping with identifying the plant. I was not a patient person, but this hobby is seemingly changing that. :D

The Guppies seem to be enjoying their new home.

That's the magic of this hobby. We get to develop a lot of good qualities as we grow up with this hobby. Keep us updated!

Thanks. Aquarajan helped 'id' the plant, its Hemianthus Umbrosum.

The front looks dark due to the way I angled the lights(4 watts).
It's focused towards the Water wisteria and Hemianthus Umbrosum which sit in the background.
I understand that they are more demanding in regards to lighting needs(Hope that's correct).

The foreground is Java moss which has grown from clumps to this carpet in 4 months with the same lighting.
I do have a more powerful LED(15 watts I think) to spare in case I see any ill affects on the moss. I will keep an eye.
