I'm in the process of setting up a 30G planted tank. I'll do the x2-OD with the 36" T-8 florescent bulbs (2). My question is: which light bulb should I pick for a medium light requirement planted tank but not too expensive?
From Dr. Smith's Catalog, I'm pondering which combination should be best:
* 1 - 9325K Aqua Rays Freshwater and 1 - 5500K Zoo Med Tropic Sun
* 2 - 9325K Aqua Rays
* 2 - 5500K Zoo Med Tropic Sun
I'm tended toward getting 1 - 9325K and 1 - 5500K setup as this combination give me a break in cost, $10.95 & $6.99, respectively!
What I'm not sure is if this is a good combination for plants & pleasant to the eyes as well. My plants are swords, crypst, wisteria, jave moss, anubias, and who knows what else will strike my fancy next!!! :lol:
Please help. Thanks.
