Lighting for 90 gallon
I'm upgrading to a 90 gallon (48" L x 18" W x 24" H). I want the tank to be heavily planted with a carpet, so I need high light. I have CO2. I'm trying to figure out what lights to get, or if I should get LED or T5. I want a nice spectrum and my reds to pop.
I prefer LED, mainly because you don't need to change the bulbs and more energy efficient.
I was looking at Twinstar S series, but I don't think it will be enough light for a 24" deep tank (21" or so with substrate). ADA RBG is too far out of my price range, especially that I may need two. Is there any other options that have a nice spectrum around $500?
Another issue is the tank has a 8-10" canopy. Can you still do a hanging or leg fixture?
Thanks for your thoughts
