I have a 6 Bulb Tek Light that will be going over a 110x (48"x18"x30").
Plants will be HC, Swords, Java Fern, Jungle Val, Chain Swords, Red tiger Lotus.
Pressurized CO2; Ferts; substrate ferts, Soilmaster Select
1) Will 6x 54W be enough to grow the above plants in my deep tank? Keep in mind that my substrate will be 3-4" deep so the actual water depth will be closer to 26-27"
2) I don't particularly care for "yellow" bulbs. At the same time I don't want it to look like a marine aquarium. Would a 50:50 combo of 6500K and 10000K-11000K lights produce the most eye pleasing result and best growth?
3) Which manufacture? Geisemann?
4) Which retailer has the best price and best service?
