Canister filters are great if you're running CO2 because they don't disturb the surface which loses CO2 quickly. I've got a single emperor on a 30 gallon and it's great. The only benefit of a...

420nm actinic suitable?

Is a 420nm actinic suitable to growing plants as a 3rd or 4th bulb in addition to standard 6500k, 6700k, and pinker bulbs?

I noticed you're running 3/4 pink bulbs. How pink does your tank look? I'm not a huge fan of the pink hue.
