I have a 2.5g hex tank that I trying to get a high amount of lighting in. The dimensions on the tank are 9" high by 4" sides. If I have done things right, the surface area should be 31.14.
As far as the lighting is concerned, would a 15 watt cf spiral light be sufficient? I have looked at rexgriggs.com and this is what I'm comming up with.
31.14 - Surface Area
30 - LSI High Light
800 - Lux Rating
31.14 x 30 / 800 = 1.16
Where am I going wrong or do I need to go with a higher wattage bulb? Thanks for your help.
