Hi...need help / advice.
I am planning to buy my lighting for my 60 gallon tank (48").
I got this lighting quote from the website www.aquatraders.com
Been reading thru' all the advices in the forum. Wanted to check if anyone had tried Odyssea 48" 130W Uni Strip Compact Fluorescent Light Fixture before. It was $69.90 and there is a web special now for $45.90.
Approx Fixture Size: 47.5"L X 4"W X 1.5"H
I am considering buying 2 of these fixtures (total will be 2 x 130 = 260 watts).
1st question, is this a good lighting fixture to get ?
2nd question, is the wattage too high for a planted tank ?
Shipping cost UPS ground is $17.22
If this is not the right option, is there any alternative lighting that is not too expensive which you will recommend ?
Thank you all so much....this is my 1st time setting up my 1st planted tank (>30 gallon). I used to have a 10 gallon and a 30 gallon planted tank.
