30" ZooMed 30" Dual T5HO W/ almost new bulbs


Selling my 30" Dual T5HO lighting set. Bulbs were replaced a month ago. Comes with one FloraSun bulb and one Ultra Sun 6700k. I have used this for the past year on my 20g long with very good success. The tank has pressurized CO2 so algae has not been an issue. I also have one my 29g that I only use Excel in with great success for low and medium light plants. I am upgrading to a BML so this won't be needed. I am in south eastern NH but frequent the Tewksbury area frequently. Best offer can have it.

Would this be to much for a low tech setup ? How much are you asking ?

It's overkill for a low tech setup... and if you were to use something like that, you would want a good floating plant cover to cut down on the light so you don't get algae.

My 29 with the same lighting doesn't receive any CO2 except for excel and algae is a non issue. I do have several taller plants (java fern, wisteria, melon sword) and driftwood that help shade my petite nana and a couple truly low light plants. In my experience it works quite well. If the light isn't run "all day" and excessive waste and food don't accumulate I don't personally see an issue nor have I experienced one.
