I have a 20H and I want to do convert it to a high tech tank. I have co2 and I want high lighting. I currently two 24W coralife double T5HO fixtures.
I want to ask which light or combination of those three will get me to be able to grow HC and other high light demanding plants
If I had to pick one I would go with the ray2. The monster is not the best on its own but added with the ray or ray2 it will makes your colors pop like crazy!
That being said the planted+ has your red and blue 'boosters' if you will. Red adding a very important spectrum for the plants and blue adding great color. If you go to their website, finnex does a good job with the specifications.
They are very light, I think they only weigh two pounds. Especially on the smaller ones, I imagine you could hang them if you wanted to. I just put mine right on the glass because it is so small and light. I think my glass weighs more than the light does.
W ll a planted plus be enougnto grow a carpet in a low tech shrimp tank. Or would it be too much. I have a fugeray on my ten gallon right now but it's kinda worthless, it can keep color in plants and plant growth is slow to non existent.
