Need your advices/suggestions on my 55 gallons tank for medium light.
I have couple questions relate to lighting. Base on the chart That was created by Hoppy (Thanks a lot), if I use 2 T5 HO 12 inches above the top it would give me medium.
Does it matter how many watt per bulb? If I use:
1. 2 T5 HO 54w (6400k and 10000k)
2. 2 T5 HO 28w (...)
3. 2 T5 HO 39w (...)
4. 1 T5 HO 39w + 1 T5 HO 28w
It would not be the same am I correct?
I would like to get medium/low for my 55 gal tank (48Lx21Hx13W). I want to get best possible light combination without using the CO2.
I plan to get 2 T5 HO 39w and hang 4 inches above the tank.
I have been reading for last couple days on lighting and I do have some ideas but I'm still not 100% sure. Any expert out there please give me advices/suggestions I would really appreciate.
This is my first post so please forgive me if I make some mistake.
