Lighting Spec V
Back home I have an amazing ray 2 powering my big tank and I loved it! The problem I have now is that I have a spec V that needs proper lighting. Right now I had a marineland double bright on it and it was just not cutting it. Currently trying a couple of 23W desk lamps and they look bad. So I have been looking into getting a 16" Planted+. I am unsure on how much lighting this will provide for my tank. The substrate is about 10" from the surface and I will be running diy CO2. I would like to get as much lighting as I can without going too far and I am unsure if the Ray2 would promote algae.
Also I have seen threads saying there is a new series of Finnex Lights that will be coming out soon. Is this still true? I am unable to find any current information on it and IF it will be soon, I want to pick up one of the new dimming fixtures.
Thanks for the help!
