Finnex Ray II on low tech tank


Do you guys think I could do a finnex ray II on a low tech, heavily planted tank? The par would be about 30ish. My current lighting is the coral life t5NO and since my tank is 22 inches tall the PAR is very weak at like 10 lol. Tell me what you think.

Thanks

I would go with the Ray2, and if it is a little too much and you get algae you can use a strip of fiberglass window screen to cut down the light.

I have the Fugeray (30") and it is just enough on my tall tank also, if I could do it over I would go with the Ray2

Thanks, that is exactly what I was thinking . The 26g bow is so tall compared to its length, so I think I will be good with the Ray II!

BTW, YOur 36g is so nice!
