I recently picked up a 2.5g from a friend, i'm not sure what to do with it yet. I would like to hear any suggestions on how I should light this tank. The tank will probably be most likely grow one species of plant; glosso, dwarf hairgrass, or HC.
I was thinking of something like a 13watt kit from AH supply, but i'm not sure if I wanna spend $30 to light the tank.
i have a 36", 2 x 36 watt jalli strip light. it has separate switches for each bulb.
it works fine on my standard 30gal aga tank. however, the left side plastic cover literally fell to pieces. i don;t know if it was damaged during shipping or if it's just poor quality. i suspect the former, cuz the right side cover is still intact.
it's a pretty tough fixture. it has fallen into my tank (because of the missing left end piece; makes the fixture a tad short) a few times and after drying it out thoroughly, it works perfectly.
