Saltwater lighting - can I use it???
Hi there -
First post! I've been reading like crazy and am ready to ask my first question.
I have a standard 75 gallon tank that I am wanting to set up as a low tech planted tank. This tank used to be a saltwater tank and I have a light fixture for it but am unsure if I can use it for a freshwater planted tank.
The fixture is a Coralife Aqualight 4-65 watt power compact fluorescent with 2 actinic and 2 10,000k bulbs. I know the actinic bulbs are worthless for a planted tank. Would running the 2 - 65 watt, 10,000k bulbs be ok?
I don't want to mess with CO2 yet if I can avoid it... still have too much learning to do on that. Would this be enough light that I would have to do CO2?
Thanks for your help!
