lighting in a eclipse 6
Well, its not realy an eclipse 6, it's a wallmart brand Regent 5, made by marineland...I wonder if they just changed the name so it wouldnt offend fish store owners by selling at walmart?
Anyway, its the standard eclipse set up, 5g. normal shape. It included a 8watt T-5 full spectrum bulb. My question is, is this adaquate to sustain or mabey even grow some plants? I am not too concerned with going high tech, this is just a side tank that is being used as a spawning tank for blue rams and just want it to look nice and provide cover. I may be willing to retrofit a 13watt compact flourescent in there if anyone has a link to a good how to page.
Let me know what you think of the possibilities of this tank.
