36g Bow Lighting Suggestions?
I just got a 36g Bow front and i'm looking for some good lights. It's 20" deep without substrate so it will probably be around 18" after I put down the substrate.
This is my first big tank so I won't be using any CO2 for the first year or so. I want to get used to the basics before I invest in a more expensive system. I figured my best route for no CO2 would be a low-med light tank.
I've read up on the PAR values and looked at some different lights. Right now i'm leaning towards the LED's since they are very efficent, last forever, and have good PAR values.
In particular I was looking at the Fugeray or the Ray2. Obviously the Ray 2 offers more light, but I wasn't sure if it would be too much light without CO2, or if it would be alright. Also there doesn't seem to be a 30" Ray 2, so I would have to go with the shorter 24" which might mean the corners of my tank would be dark.
If anyone could offer me any suggestions or advice I would appreciate it. I don't want to spent a decent amount of money on a set-up and then have it either not be enough light or end up with me fighting constant algae blooms.
