Lighting for carpeting Glossy??
Hey all, was curious about what type of lighting i should use for my 30 gallon tank that can carpet glossy..
Currently i have an AquaticLife T5HO fixture.. 2 bulb.. Both 39w
I had a Life-Glo 6700k bulb in my fixture along with a Fulham 6500k bulb, and my glossy grows fine, it just grows tall.. Which ive heard is from lighting that isn't strong enough..
I am looking for suggestions or what people have used that help glossy carpet..
I am running co2, and dosing liquid ferts as well..
I have a baby tears carpet as well, but those mostly grew under 2 corallife fixtures that sat on the top of the tank, was not HO lighting.. and each fixture put out 42 watts per fixture putting me at around 80 watts which is what i have roughly right now except it is HO lighting..
The corallife also had poor reflectors which is why i had 2 of them to cover more area.. since the fixtures themselves are only 3 inches wide.
