How do I properly acclimate my tank to higher wattage
Hey guys I need some help. I have a 29 gallon that has been doing well now for over a year and a half. All this time I have been running with a 24" Coralife Aqualight at 65W & 6,700K. Well just today I picked up a 36" version of the same light from a fellow hobbyist. However, this light is 96W at 10,000K. I wanted it because the 24" was just a little to short and left my sides dim. I knew I would be ok with the change in temp but I am not sure of the safest way to acclimate my tank to the increase in wattage?
In my tank I have two healthy Amazon swords, multiple crypt's, and one large anubia. The inhabitants are 4 cory's, eight Tetras, and 2 Otto's. I also run with 2 2L coke bottles of DIY CO2 attached to hagen ladders.
Can someone shed some light on how to acclimate properly so I don't hurt anything?
