Spec 3 Lighting Options
I am thinking of upgrading my Spec 3 Lights. While I like the look of the lights that come with the tank. I think I want to get a little brighter system to be able to grow med light plants.
It seems like LED is the thing to get these days. But one of my options is a 13w CFL by Fluval. Will the CFL run hotter, and will it be too much for my 2.6g.
Here is what I am looking at. I would love some options, and suggestions.
#1 choice right now is the Finnex FugeRay. It is 10" and from the reviews it will fit the top of the tank perfectly. It is 4W, but with LED's does the wattage make the same difference as a CFL? Price for this is $33 with free shipping. I also like that is has moonlights.
#2 option is the 13W Fluval. It also should fit the tank, but not too keen on having to change the bulbs out every 6 months or so. Also it is not cheap either. Will be right around $41 with free shipping.
#3 is also a Finnex, the Stingray clipon. It is also 4w and I think very similar to the FugeRay. I think I like the looks of the FugeRay better. At $25 it is the cheapest. But I also think the cheapest looking.
Anyone with experience on any of the 3 models I would love to hear from you.
