5 gallon Led Experiment
Little 5 gallon I set up to test out a few led lights
Only Ricca and glosso in there right now just started cycling this tank with new Ada amazonian 2 Ammonia is off the charts but plants are pearling and growing like crazy. The excel par calculator for par puts my par at about 900 but without a par meter who knows. So far so good no algae and extreme plant growth Co2 is at about 5 bps and using a modified pps dosing
