Someone advised me to get rid of finnex ray and go back o my 15 w lights,plant some low light plants that fish would not touch and the plants will be fine with that type of light. Now i am really confused... Please help
Ok. A little primer on this.
Light provides energy for plants to grow. The more light, the faster they try to grow.
Of course, plants can't grow on energy alone. They need food as well. Just like we need a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, plus vitamins and minerals, plants also need a variety of things.
If you were asked to work hard, day after day, while not eating enough or properly nutritious food, you would eventually weaken, get sick, and possibly die. If a plant is driven to grow fast by light, and there isn't enough of what it needs in the water, the same happens to them.
The more light there is, the more likely that something plants need in the tank will be consumed until it runs out. With low light, there's usually enough around from tapwater and fish food that it's not a problem. But with more light, you have to be familiar with all the plants' requirements, and add them as needed. So unless you're ready to start learning about those requirements and how to satisfy them, best to stay with low light.
I'm not familiar with the Finnex Ray, but someone else already suggested it was probably overkill - meaning it's more than low light. And although photos can be deceiving, it looks bright enough that I believe they're right.
