How do I know if my lights are low med or high strength in proportion to my aquarium?
How do I know if my lights are low, med or high strength in proportion to the fish tank?
Usually we read that plants either need low, med. or high light. How can we determine what lights do we have or do we need for the plants to grow well? Is there some kind of equation??? Unfortunately most people that work in pet stores know nothing about lighting and plants. Please advice!
My fish tank is 20g long (16" high). I use 2 T5 HO bulbs by Zoomed.
One is Flora Sun and the other is Ultra Sun.
The Ultra Sun is 24watts and 6500K.
The Flora Sun is 5000K and also 24 watts.
Is the combination of those two good enough to grow Dwarf Baby Tears which needs high lighting?
I keep the lights for around 10-12 hours/day and have a CO2 system running when the lights are on.
