They can be a bit fragile, but accept most foods and are pretty easy on the eyes. Great schooling fish that stays up in the water column. Temperatures of 90F will kill them, just fyi.

I run one 30W on my 20L and it's more than plenty, I'm thinking high light in most of it. The only complaint is the ends of the tank get dark when the plants grow in really thick or the floaters...

For me Apisto's are by far the best looking of the three. All of them can work at 7.4, granted this rules out some krib relatives and some apistogramma species. If you want a massive fish, then go...

So if Halides only grow algae they can't grow plants then because plants are not alage. This is horrible advice, plants grow like mad under metal halide and it's one of the most efficient light...

They would love to eat shrimplets. Some of the larger killis could probably tear into adults. I'm thinking a lot of them actually are not annuals. I've heard they are fond of cooler temperatures...

If you could find a legal avenue of purchase, you would probably have to keep these in an outdoor pond.

You simply screw them into a regular socket. They do give off heat, but the shiny metal part you see that makes up the bulk of the light has a very important function as the heat sink.

2x30w's will be better than 3x 20w all day for growing a carpet. To be sure your going to have high light at the substrate, you might need to go with 2x 30W, or 1x50w. Maybe spring for the 50w and...

They could work. Probably not worth the money, and they don't seem terribly efficient for an LED, at least one of the 20w I clicked on was rated at 1000 lumens, which isn't very good. I have 2 from...

12V is DC, typically the stuff you would run in your car, or on your boat. Your house is 120v AC. I suppose you could hook your light up to a power inverter and run it off AC. Probably easier to find...

Scour ebay, if you buy them directly from china they will take weeks to arrive. There are US sellers, but they are all made in china regardless. Make sure it's not a 12v model.

That's a great idea. if you had 6 tanks and just 2 treatments you could do a t-test. Just do a 6+6 siesta vs a 12 hour photoperiod. For the sake of the experiment I would start with no co2, you could...

Hmm medium light for a 75, probably 2-3x 20w, or might be safer to get 2x 30w.

Redtail84, I'd go with either 1x 20w, 1x 30w, or if you want to have high light across every inch of that tank, 2 separate 20W's. You might need to increase your CO2 production with all that light....

Based on the info the sellers give on lumen output, it appears the RGB's don't put out as much light at a dedicated white, or blue led of the same wattage.
