Aparker2005 I've now got 2 30" planted plus 24/7s, and a 48" planted plus!

organic sideburns Hey all. I will be setting up a medium tech 40 breeder peaceful community tank. I want ferns, mosses, anubias, dwarf sag, Marsilea Minuta. I plan on doing pool filter sand as most of my plants won't need to be in the substrate.

My question is, what type of finnex light would be best for this set up? No co2 for right now, a few simple ferts, and I want to avoid algae as much as I can. Thanks!

jmeeter Would a Ray2 or Planted+ be better for a 18" tall 35G with ferts and pressurized CO2?

Roarke Hey guys. Happy owner of a finnex stingray. It's a great light! I'm upgrading to "high tech" and I'm considering the planted plus 24/7.

One thing that concerns me is I'm getting conflicting information about using this light on a timer, as opposed to using the 24/7 mode. If you set it at the brightest setting and save that, when power cycled at the wall (Not using the remote!) will it remember that setting? Thanks!

That was Aponogeton Boivianus.Did amazing for me at first, but then I came to find it had been using the nutrients stored in it bulb. It had a bulb bigger than a golf ball, when I removed it most of the bulb was gone. My temp was too low, and ph and TDS too high for it. It also requires a dormant period. It's absolutely beautiful when grown in proper conditions, but it's gotta be the slowest growing Aponogeton. It as.lso requires a rich substrate, and likes good current/flow. Was My first attempt at a more advanced plant, I will try it again if I ever get into high tech/CO2.

Amphiprion1 Loving my 20" 24/7 on my high tech spec v. Great growth even at 50%. 24/7 mode is too bright for my little tank, though.

amodernstitch I was pretty set to order the Planted Plus for my new 100H (is that the way to denote that my 100 gallon tank is 24 inches tall?)

I like the options of programing the light.
Is ramp up important?

What does it mean to join this club?? just follow this thread?

I am fairly new to the forum and learning the lay of the land here.

All thoughts and opinions are welcomed.

sphearion Its safe to add me to the list as well. Just setup a 55g planted community tank, with 48" Finnex Planted+ 24/7. Absolutely loving it so far.

Wilderman204 Loving my new Finnex LED!!
Had this 48" planted 24/7 on this newly set up dirted tank for just over a month. No co2 Everything is really growing well. I've never seen giant hairgrass spread so quickly underwater. The light is Crazy slim, and never seems to get hot at all, just warm.And I love the 24/7 feature, now my fish don't get startled every morning by instant light lol.
