Returning hobbyist looking to start back up correctly
I’m looking to get back into the planted tank game and have been doing a lot of research to catch back up on the latest trends. I’ve been scouring this forum but this is my first post.
Lighting is where I’m seeing the biggest changes/advancements. I’m going to be setting up a standard 65gal (36x18x24), running CO2, does ferts as needed, and would like to be able to grow pretty much anything I’d want. I currently have 2 18” CurrentUSA pro lights that I could use but I’ve never used them on a tank this deep. I would like to have a carpeted bottom but haven’t picked out any specific plants until I’ve selected all my hardware.
My questions to the forum is:
Are the CurrentUSA Pro lights I currently have adequate enough? If not what do you recommend and why?
This may be a dumb question but how much does a glass top effect PAR values?
