Lighting Advice 6' long x 2' deep
I am looking to upgrade my 3' to a 6' but am struggling to find LED lights to fit this length.
I am currently running a Finnex 24/7 and a Cheaper White/Blue LED strip, and am injecting pressurized Co2 on my 3' and get pretty good growth on everything except the dwarf grass carpet.
I would ideally like lighting which would fit a 6' length and would reach a depth of 24" to grow, at the very least, dwarf hair grass (although a setup that could grow HC would be preferable).
Is LED still the best option for a tank of this size? I am open to the idea of Metal Halide if this would be a better idea, but having a closed, raised, oak hood, ventilation could be an issue unless i install fans to blow the heat out the open back.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want to get everything priced up before I pull the trigger and would like to get everything right on the first try to save pointless expense.
