Good 24" fixture?


I'm setting up a 10 gallons tank with some HC, glosso and drawf hairgrass. Which 24" fixture is good for this setup? What do you recommend? Thanks!!!!

I'd recommend a 20" fixture as a 10s only 20" long. But if ur growing hc then u need high light and co2, so do a finnex fixture or a t5ho

Thanks! I'm looking into getting the finnex fugeray. It has good reviews on amazon. What is the PAR value on these led fixtures?

This is a fugeray on an empty 10 gallon. Not sure on the par, but it is bright man.

I'm planning to inject co2. The finnex fugeray2 gives out higher par value. I there is a thread about these models somewhere in the forum. That said, the fugeray has 660nm red LEDs + 7k daylight while ray2 is equipped with 7k daylight LEDs.

I think the PAR values are in a thread in the finnex section of the forum.

I have a fugeray over a 10 gallon with no CO2. I'm using floaters, a layer of windowscreen and I'm still getting hair algae.
