I agree. You will get better distribution with 30" bulbs but the limited choices and short life span have always deterred me.

I'm no expert on light spectrum but I've always used 6700 K on my planted tanks. From what I've read, it's the most natural light spectrum. I would think that there isn't a huge difference between...

I like the reset. The tank has a lot more depth now with the build up on the right side. Maybe get some red plants incorporated like some Ludwigia peruensis on the left side of the tank. I love...

What kind of bulbs are using on that fixture. I know it comes with 2 10K and 2 actinic. I have this light as well and kept 1 of the 10,000K and swapped the rest for 6700K.

Rena XP2 and 3 is what I run both of my tanks on. It's a reliable, sturdy and quiet filter. They do need to be cleaned a little more often than a Fluval but a great secondary to it. I would stay...

I know most of you will disagree with me, but I have the TrueAqua in line 10 watt. I've had it for over 2 years (1 bulb replacement) and have had no issues. For $40, I think its a great bang for...

I would go with the Coralife Aqualight dual fixture. It has pretty decent reflectors and should grow your DBT's well. This will still keep you in the medium light category but if you really want to...

Not sure why you would think they're PC but they do make 96 watt T5HO. It's a quad light set-up (24 w per bulb).

I'm assuming this is the light you have.

From the very little research I've done, the biggest issue I see is the light spectrum. The highest I've seen any induction light is 6700. It is A LOT of power for what most of us could use (unless...

There's nothing "wrong" per-say with our current lights but what were people using before MH or CFL? The technology is advancing and when they apply it to our specific needs, it can only get better,...

Nice to know that someone has given this a whirl. I'm not too concerned with the TV reception as I have cable and I think I can live with the hum. I'm more concerned on the light spectrum and...
