I picked up a new 75 gallon tank to replace the 30 gallon I have now. I'm really puzzled on what to do for lights on the new tank.
The 30 gallon had 2x36 watt compact flourescents that did an excellent job. With about 2.5 WPG, I had great swords, crypts, wisteria, anabuis, and sessiliflora. Really liked the cryts.
For the 75 gallon, I can't decide if I should use 4x55 for 3 WPG or 4x32 for 2 WPG. I'm looking to grow the same low to moderate light plants.
I haven't mae the jump to CO2 yet and my fish are a group of crazy goldfish.
Any comments would be helpful...
