roseate (pink) lamps are claimed to enhance plant coloring and bloom colors so I use them. Anything between 5K and 10K on a bulb will benefit the plants but each will look different to us viewing the tank.

Glass covers are more to stop evaporation and contain jumping fish. If you keep them clean it effects light levels very little is my understanding. I have them on 90% of my tanks.


hahaha and none of us know what we are doing LOL

but if it's fun and not frustrating then it's all good as long as nobody dies I think.
