Help With New Low Tech Set Up
Im currently in the process of building a canopy for my tank. I would like to make this tank fairly heavily planted but low tech, im thinking just excel dosing.
The canopy design as of right now has two CFL daylight bulbs in the middle mounted horizontally. The tank is a 45 Gallon(36x12x24). I saw 60 watt bulbs at Home Depot when i was getting the wood for the canopy, is this going to be too much light? Im not planning on using a reflector inside the canopy, just painting it white. What would be some good plants for a beginner. I plan on just getting the plants going before i add any fish to the set up.
