I feel like a stranger on this forum ive been spending so much time on bmw forums lately
Long story short blew up the motor in my 85 325 so I'm upgrading and building a new really fast motor for it. It's. Costing me about 10x what I had budgeted for the build. So the money for fish tank stuff is gone
I have some more work to do with the lighting these led floodlights are worthless I originally thought I could run 1 10w led floodlight over each tank....yeah right. I tried 2 per a tank...stil not enough light. For the last month I've had 1 20w and 1 10w over 1 of my tanks. In still not even getting algae growth(I know that's normally a good thing) I have 2xt8's over another tank and it's thriving. All these tanks are non co2 no ferts. Just food and top offs.
Tge rest of my co2 parts should be arriving this week
In going to try running 1x20w led flood and 2x10w led flood over my two farm tanks. Hopefully this combined with co2 and dosing as needed will work well.
I may have to invest in some ray2's if this doesn't work. If I have to add anymore led floodlights it will drive my cost up so I would rather buy the nicer looking fixture that works
Pics(I just moved so things aren't very organized yet)
The plants in the bottom tanks are all out of my 72g high tech tank I'm redoing.
After taking those pics I did notice something. They are all pearling. I did do 2 gallon top off on each tank today but that was 10 hours ago while the lights were out.
