    Lots of light and good circulation as well as weekly feeding.

    Not as easy as the bubble tips.

    Not great for beginners, needs a good stable aquarium.

    You gonna need way more light power than that, think 250w Mh should do. Believe me, I tried one that was about 25cm away from 8 T5's and it just went backwards.

    Edit - I lie it was more like 15 - 20 cm away from the light.

    hey dude... as they said above... rather hook up the 150 solong as you dont want to wait for a decline in health as a sign.... thats cruelty,they need atleast a 250 watt MH, i had 1 under a 250 and he still climbed glass for more light.
