Hey guys, as this is my first posting on this forum I would begin by saying I am a 20 year old, male student living in Trinidad with a 150 gallon (5ftx2ftx2ft) main display tank.
My tank is planted with several types of anubias, sunset crypts, giant amazon sword, crypt Balansaes, and a crinium natan.
Temp 79 - 81 degrees.
TurboTwist 36W Inline UV Sterilizer
Pool filter stand supplemented with flourish tabs
12 Lake Wanam rainbowfish
20 Denison barbs will be added soon, will be reduced to 12 soon after.
6 Bolivian rams (will be removed next month)
So now you know the basics of my tank I'll let you know what is happening now.
This tank has been established almost a year and uses a 48''-60'' marineland double bright led.
With 35 PAR at 24'', the distance between my substrate and light is around 22'' so low - low/med light.
I am now looking to upgrade my lighting as I would like to use the current fixture on a discus grow out tank and I will be adding more plants such as red tiger lotuses and more sunset crypts.
I will not
be adding a C02 system but I do have Flourish, Excel, and Potassium on hand supplemented by flourish tabs under the plants.
I was looking at these fixtures and would replace it with recommended spectrum bulbs:
I'm not sure if the ballast is good tho..
I would like some recommendations on what lighting I should upgrade to and what spectrum bulbs I need.
