lighting 20L low tech/Aqueon Evolve 8 with Coralife T5 NO???
This may be covered somewhere else on the forum (and I really hate to repeat the question), but I'm still new at planted tanks and am getting lost among all the info out there. So, if someone would be willing to help, that would be awesome!
I am trying to set up a 20 gallon long community tank, but I keep getting lost, especially with lighting. I plan on mostly growing low/med light plants and might consider DIY CO2 at some point. But what light should I get? I'm considering the 30 inch Coralife Aqualight T5 Freshwater Duel Lamp Fixture, but I don't know what bulbs I need and how high I should hang it above my substrate.
Also, I currently have an Aqueon Evolve 8 with stock lighting and filtration (though I'm thinking I might modify it soon) running with narrow leaf java fern and some crypts. I will be putting the 20L on my desk next to the Evolve and have considered getting the 48 inch Coralife fixture to hang above both tanks...would this even work, or should I stick to two different fixtures?
Thanks so much in advance!
