Thanks! Yes it's an Up Aqua Pro Z. Thinking about changing it though because I don't think it's putting out enough light for the HC.

I swear I am reading through alllll the journals to find this answer. However, most of you use co2, and that throws things off for me.

Anyone want to help out and recommend a light for a non co2 tank?

Many thanks in advance!

marineland doublebright if you suspend it 18 inches above substrate. Check out ADA's journal. I stole this idea from him. I think somewhatshocked also has this. I have co2 on mine because I've wanted a co2 setup for a long long time lol.

I emailed current for par ratings for their satellite+ a few weeks ago but i forgot exactly what they said. It was definitely lower than the marineland doublebrights by at least 10 so that could be an option if you dont want to suspend it. try emailing them for the par values. I know 2 people had a thread recently where they got the satellite+ light but it wasn't a 36"

Any light will work but you are going to have to raise it high depending on its output. I'm using the oddyssea 78watt dual t5 and raised it. ~24" from the substrate gives you high light...

Do a search for par values n here..there are a few posts woth valuable information. Hopefully that helps you find the right light for your needs...

A single T5NO 21 watt light strip or a Single Bright LED Lighting System may work. Just you list of plant would be limited.

Here are some tanks without Co2

Thank you Hilde! Very helpful.

After an extended troll through the lighting section, and journals, I am pretty interested in the Current Satellite Freshwater LED+. Seems to fit the price/size/PAR/spectrum bill, at least for what I am doing.

Thanks. No, no journal. In hindsight, I wish I had done one from the beginning, but I'll be sure to do one on my next set-up.

Would it be hazardous to place the aquarium on this bookcase( http://imgur.com/0zHKzOE ) and set it as a room divider?

I looks very questionable as far as stability goes. I think you'll have to reinforce it to handle the weight, secure it to the wall so it won't fall and water proof it some how.
