    mkay every one ive just got a old fishtank thats about 36inches by 18inches, it has some long lights across the top, would these lights support 2 plants? I know you can put plants in the water n the lights work as a sun, but are thay strong enough to support a :leaf:plant?:weed::bigjoint:the bulb says eclipse natral sunlight, idk...

    First off how are you growing, Hydro? Soil? Hempy?

    Do you know anything at all about your lights? Like:

    Your also going to need some sort of ventilation.

    I thought about doing a fish tank grow. I have an old 55gal fish tank, had to give the fish away cuz it got a crack in it. Anyways I was told not to do it by a few people cuz it wouldn't work... Hahaha, I went ahead and did it anyways! And it's so far working well! lol, here are a couple pix, maybe they'll give you some ideas or something... These pix are a little bit old, but I can take new one's if you'd like. Just let me know! Hope this helps!

    id use about 2-5 drops of hydrogen peroxcide mixed with a shotglass full of water, any tomato growing things will work, but rember, it will efect the taste. dont water them more then a shot a day, give 14-18 hours of light a day, then use dimer lights for rest, when thay are taller then 8inches give them 18-20 hours of light a day, keep um moist and make shure the leves dont fry, if thay get droupy leves put them on the porch for 3 days.(take them in at night so thay dont get too cold) all u need is merical grow, liquid seaweed if ya can find it, mix 1 ounce in 8 ounces of water, let it soulut for 3 days. and ofcorse a few drops of hydrogen peroxcide in the water(water =h2o, peroxcide =h202), it will put oxygen in the soil, required for THC to fourm, also, use a air pump if you can not a fan that close, it killz the plant by vibrations, a old matress pump, flip the hose backwords, and it will suck air out., keep a hole in the botem of the buckets so water can drain, it will build up n rot the roots and mold or rot. hope i helped.:weed:(in budding phase, harvest 4 days after bottem leves turn yellow, cut vertacaly with sharp sisors.):leaf::hump:(this is all i know
