My tank is 29 gallons and I bought it with the starter kit from Petsmart, so it came with a crappy 18W light. I recently decided to upgrade and bought a 30" Coralife T5NO light fixture and I am thinking of returning it because it is considered to have low light output if I am not mistaken.
My question is should I stick with the Coralife light that I bought, or return it and apply the $50 dollars towards buying a different fixture to help grow my plants the best.
*I want to have low-medium light, without the use of pressurized Co2 (I will dose Excel though
Thank you in advance for your input!
