Halogen on 15" tall 7.5 Gallon
I'm going to put this in my kitchen and was hoping to use some Ikea wall lamps. They all seem to use Halogen bulbs.
Should I be using the same watt per gallon rule (which is already fairly approximate.. I know... using lux as a measurement is more accurate ... honestly.. too much math for me) that we use for our large sized tanks?
Does 40 watts of Halogen lighting equal 40 Watts of a PC lamp?
