I recently just purchased a GLA 6g rimless tank. Dimensions are 15in x 9in x 11in.
It will be a low-tech tank with just various types of moss and simple low/medium light plants. No co2.
I am building my own stand and am looking for a hanging light figure to hang from some poles above my 6G tank. Since my tank is 11inch tall, if I were to suspend a Catalina light fixture, maybe about 6-8 inches above the tank (10-12 inches if needed), which light fixture would be best to hang over the tank?
tank is 11in tall and 15in long.
Catalina 14" single 18W Compact fluorescent
Catalina 12" single 13W Compact fluorescent
OR! since this light will be suspended at least 6 inches above my rimless tank, is that not enough light for a low/medium non-co2 tank? What about this:
Catalina 12" double 13w Compact fluorescent
Thanks all! I want this to be a simple, beautiful, rimless tank without algae problems, but want to be able to grow some plants. I prefer a hanging fixture, as I don't want anything on the rim of my tank because I also just purchased some CalAqua glass lily pipes.
