    High Cordero Hardy!

    to 420 Magazine!

    As for your question honestly as many as you want to put in there with out causing too much heat is good. I would say in that space maybe 3. but its kind of hard to say with out being able to see the set up.

    Also If you need any help with photos later check out the photo gallery help link in my sig.

    If I understand you correctly, you are using a fish tank on it's end. Not sure why you want to use something like that in the first place, but I would suspect a lack ventilation to be your biggest problem of all. Plants need good airflow.
