Hello! So its tax time, and I am looking to upgrade my lights in my 55 gal tank to a more medium light setup. currently, due to budget restraints I had to use a 40 fiture. Now im looking for something to help my aquarium thrive. I plan in some glass canopies and some good lights, here are some that I will be able to afford and seem to be decent on reveiws and specs. If you know a great light, please do not keep it to yourself.
Aqueon LED Light
Marineland Double Bright LED Light - 36 in. to 48 in
48" 260w Pl Aquarium Light Reef Marine Fish Tank Hood Light
This light looks like an amazeing deal for the money, but the reviews say the brackets are flimsy and prevent canopies from fitting correctly. hanging from the ceiling is not an option, and the canopies are required due to my fish being species known for jumping and I have a cat. So i think this one may not work well.
Odyssea 48" T5 HO Quad Aquarium Light Fluorescent Hood Fixture w/4 LED - Plant 4x54W
Those are the Amazon ones I found. I also live close to www.thatpetplace.com
and have been looking into there inventory as well.
So sujestions anyone? Lighting seems to be much harder then initially expected, but I am looking for decent med lights that will work well for lower tech (non c02 injected yet.) plants.
