FugeRay2 AND 2xT5HO for 75 Gallon


A few months ago I bought a 48" fugeray2 for my 75 which has pressurized CO2. But after a few months I noticed some growth but not as much as when I had my 3 bulb T5HO. Also I've noticed a bit more algae than I like and my red plants have begun to fade. The fugeray seemed more like an accent fixture due to it being so thin. So this morning I threw on my 2 bulb T5HO to go along with my LED. I have it timed where both fixtures are on at the same time for only 4 hours a day. Is this too much? Too little? Or just right?

I think it depends, my Ludwiga sp Red does well under mine, but the Ludwgia Rubin is kind of half green half red, but still looks good.

I have a Ray 2 over my 72 bow front

Yeah my ludwigia repens is still a nice pinkish color but before those suckers were blood red as well as my red root floaters. Right now I have my t5's running 6 hours with my fugeray2 providing a mid day burst for a few hours so we'll see.
