Eightbit's 25gal First go at this tank.


This will be my first planted tank. I've been keeping salt water for 5 years now and well that I'd give this a go.
To start with I got the Aquarium "premium" kit that says it's got all the bits to grow plants such as proper lighting.

The Tank is 25 gallons it's foot print is 24 in L X 13 in W X 21 in H.

I really like the size. It sits very nice up agiasnt my wall.

The light is a coralife 24" Aqualight Dual T5. One bulb is Higher Light out wich puts out 6,700K and the other bulb is a colormax flurescent lamp that doesn't put out much at all.

ITs got your standard hang on the pack filter right now and heater.

Now I know lighting and what nots for corals, but what about plants? do I need to put out more light or did this kit really come with a proper amount to grow most plants.
