somewhatshocked Finnex is a forum sponsor. Check their sub-forum to see if they're available in the UK.

Josh-HL Hmm from a quick google doesn't look like the Finnex Fugeray is available in the UK

Josh-HL Thanks I'll check out the Finnex Fugeray, I'm not really able to hang any lights unfortunately.

And yeah a betta could be possible I do have on in my 60L at the moment though so maybe something else. My local shop has a school of neons in there, about 6... Not sure if it is quite big enough for that to be honest.

KFryman The regular Finnex Fugeray should have you at medium high light if their PAR rating is true. Since your tank doesn't have much height. You could go with the Ray 2 but you would probably need to hang it.

Live stock would help keep the tank going with some nitrates. Why not add a single betta or something else?

Upgrade lighting on Fluval Spec


I'm looking to buy a Fluval spec 19l just to see what I can do with it really.

In my bigger tanks i've stuck to low light plants etc however in this i'm not really looking to add fish due to its size so I'd just like to see what I can grow/carpet and how nice I can make it look.

The standard lighting with this tank is 37 led 7500K, however pretty sure these LED's wouldn't be sufficient to grow a carpet and whatever else I plan to try in this tank.

So wondering if anyone can suggest a lighting system suitable for this tank please? Dimensions are 43.5 x 27 x 16cm / 17.2" x 10.6" x 6.3" (L x W x H)
