    Hi,

    Hoping you can provide some guidance as to which of these would you use for a 10-gallon planted tank:

    1.) MarineLand ML Double-Bright LED 18-24
    6 x 1 W & 3 x 60 mW
    Lumens = 450
    2.) Beamswork Reef Bright 18-21
    15 x 10,000K & 3 x 460 nm Actinic
    Lumens = 1300
    Watts = 18
    3.) Green Element EVO Reef 18-22 (Uses 3-W vs. 1-W)
    7 x 10,000K & 3 x 460 nm Actinic
    Lumens = 1350
    Watts = 30

    Thanks!!

    Hi Hoppy, I was wondering if you could check out my lighting question if you get a minute.-

    http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=185831

    I've been trying to read through you older posts and it seems that in your opinion a T8 is enough for a 12" deep tank with low light plants. I guess my question to you is, are the marineland T8 fixtures ok, and would you recommend 1 or 2 of them for a 20 long 30"x12"x12". I would also love to get your opinon on bulb choices, I listed several of them in the thread. Thanks in advance if you find the time to help.

    When I quit using a drop checker I was using 1.7 dKH standard solution instead of 4 dKH. That would be yellow at around 30 ppm of CO2. When I was doing that I was using DIY CO2, as I am now, and with that you don't need to get too concerned about having too much CO2, but I liked being able to see that I had a significant amount, using 1.7 dKH. All of this was over a year ago, and my memory isn't good enough now to remember all of the details.

    Thanks. Any advice on calibrating the drop checker to be bright yellow when at 30ppm instead of green?

    I don't think I wrote a "guide" on the drop checker. That was long enough ago that I kind of forget just what I did. There is a thread in the DIY forum about it though.
