I'm new here, however I've recently been getting into planted aquariums. I just ordered a 30 inch compact strip AllGlass 55W for my 29 and a 110W 36 inch AllGlass compact for my 38g. My question is: can I attach mounting legs to these lights?
My 29g is planted (bare with me, names are coming in the near future, I'm still not very good with them) I just purchased a CO2 injector system from big Als,
For the 29g.
I have an Angel, powder blue gourami, butterfly fish, clown pleco, and 2 cories in there.
My tank looks like this:
Sorry for the poor quality of the picture. If it doesn't show, you can see it at:
I've got an Amazon Sword, Water sprite, pennywort planted in the back, some grass type stuff I don't know the name for by the filter intake, some stem plants that I don't know the name of either.
Sorry about the names. I'm trying to learn them.
Anyway, I'm still waiting for my compact strips. In that picture, I have the glass top with a 30 inch 20W plant light and a 15W plant light from an old 10g of mine.
How should I set up the compact light. I don't want to set it on the glass lid.
Will those mounting legs work?
My water params are (haven't checked exact pH since CO2 injector)
pH 7.0, Extremely soft water, between 17-34ppm, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate ? 80F
Fully cycled tank, Tetratech 330 filter.
Any reccommendations on the tank in general? My substrate is that kind that already has the bacteria when you purchase it...I can't remember the name of that for the life of me either. It's all black. I've had it for about a year.
This forum is wonderful by the way. I'm kind of a Newb at plants but have been a fishkeeper for over 5 years.
In my 38 I just have 2 juvenille green severums which I love, but my planted tank is going to stay focused on the 29.
Again any help would be much appreciated.
