finnex fugeray plant + pix?


Hey everyone
Im upgrading to a 75 low tech planted tank. Im strongly considering the finnex fugeray plant +. Also in the back of my head the current satellite plant plus.
Just a little concerned about coverage.
If you have either of these light fixtures id love to see how they look on a larger tank!
Nows the time to show off a little.
Thanks
Patrick

The planted plus on my 10 gallon low tech, it keeps nice reds in the stems and grows plants just fine

I think your 75 is like 18" front to back and 21" tall? My 36 bow isn't as long (obviously ) but it is about 16" front to back and 21" tall. Has one 30" Planted+ on it.

Thanks j Brady
BEAUTIFUL tank. Yes 18 wide 22 tall. I've been doing research and even though I was ready to go with the fugeray the only place I can find the 48 is on amazon and they say 5-6 weeks to ship. So ill probably go with current satellite plus

I've heard that the Satellite + can do great things with colors and such but doesn't really have the PAR for a deep planted tank - you might want to check into that with the Current people.

Don't know yet, I just put it on the tank yesterday but I can tell you that when I got home from work today the HC was pearling like CRAZY. Anyway I run pressurized at 2bps with a 10 hr photoperiod. Planted+ with 2 - 24w t5ho bulbs. And yes I dose dry ferts
