The plants you listed are low light plants....

FHE14W/T5/840 I think this is saying T5 14watts and this is a 26.5 gallon tank. I would say 20-30 watts of light ought to do you just fine.

Well, looks like my fern is fine. The translucent tip is gradually 'filling in' and getting bigger so I think it must have been normal growth. I just had no idea they did that!

I did replace my bulb with a GLO Power-Glo bulb from the LFS a bit further away... however I think I may try and refit the lighting fixture to take two bulbs so I can put another one in. It can only take one 15W at the moment, which doesn't seem to be quite enough.

Thanks again for everyones help.

OR if you could get your hands on a T5NO (make sure you get normal output) single strip you would be able to play around with a few other plants.
