I've read several places this is enough for high light plants in my 55 gallon. However my anubis seem to be getting see through leaves? I'm also having an issue with algae growing on leaves of plants. What should I do? My nitrates are still a bit high to get fish. Should I get some snails?
I've been reading all sorts of treads on LED lights and planted aquarium. And the more I read the more I'm confused.
Perhaps you can help me on this subject. I have a "Koval Inc 129 LED Aquarium Light with Extendable Brackets, 36-Inch to 43-Inch" on my 65 gal aquarium. I have planted a verity of plants and I'm also using CO2 pressure tank. Is this light enough to grown my plants successfully or do I need to find a better light source?
