Help with lighting for 65 gallon low tech
I moved some plants from a 30 gallon to a 65 gallon. My plan is for low tech/low light set-up. I cannot decide what LED to go with. I have been combing the lighting threads for 2 weeks, and love all the information, but it's making me so indecisive! I keep thinking the Finnex Fuge Ray is right, but then I wonder if I should go with the Finnex Ray 2. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid the Ray 2 will be too much light, and the Fuge Ray will be too little... Any advice?

The Fugeray 36 inch long light is the one that would give you the best light intensity - 30 to 35 micromols of PAR. This is a bit high for not using CO2, but if you use Excel instead, it should work well.
