As I understand it, Tungsten Halogen lamps are not the most efficient
bulbs around. Your initial cost savings will soon be eaten up by the
cost of electricity. Also, these bulbs get very, very hot. This issue
has come up before, and the general consensus was go ahead and spend the
money on fluorescent or metal halide bulbs.

SAE stands for Siamese Algae Eater. There's a really excellent article
about them at The Aquatic Gardener web-site.

Poor Man's Dupla (or daily) Drops. A DIY (do-it-yourself) fertilizer mix
that many people, including myself, are having excellent results with.
