Newbie Needs Help
Hello all, I've been reading on here for a couple days and have been preparing to setup my first serious tank.
26 Gallon Tank
Plants that work in low to mid light, but I'd like to avoid CO2 atleast until I'm comfortable with having a tank up and running.
Haven't decided on the fish yet, however I have some Danio's and Tiger Barbs that will likely be moved to this tank. I would like shrimp and snails as well along with some other fish to be determined at a later date.
The tank I got came with a flourescent 18watt bulb. I'm looking around at options for lighting and have found a few I'm curious about.
Would 28watts of T5 light be enough, since it would put me right over 1 watt/gallon?
If not, would this be too much? (2x24watt)
Any other suggestions? I have the Aqueon bowfront tank and this is the first time adding anything extra to a tank other than filters and bubblers and the such. I'm trying to read all I can, but I have the tank sitting here and wanted to finish getting the basics so I can begin setting it up.
Thanks for all of the help!
Edit: It appears I don't have the post count to post the links. The 2 lights are: 1) Coralife Aqualite double Strip (2 x 14watt) and 2) Nova Extreme 24" (2 x 24watt). Both use T5 bulbs.
