Enjoying the black substrate opposed to the white pool sand.
I am using a Nova Extreme 2xT5HO 78W. I'm not sure what the PAR rating is. For my understanding it put me in medium - high range. The reflectors aren't the best. I am already adding extra iron but I think it need extra lighting for to red to come out. Maybe a Finnex Ray 2.
