40 gallon breeder for planted tank?
I have a 40 gallon breeder sit around for sometimes now. I want to use it as a medium light planted tank with moderate plants in general.
The tank dimensions are: 36 x 18 deep and 17 tall
I also have an extra pressurized CO2 set up available for this tank.
I am going to use a 36 current (2) 10K 21watts bulb for a total of 42 watts roughly 1+W/gallon.
Do I need to add more light to make it around 2watts/gallon?
I hope this is sufficed enough for a shallow tank of 17 inch.
I plant to use regular tan color substrate mixed with black diamond blasting sand. I have an extra box of root tabs to use as well.
I plan to do PPS-Pro approach on a regular weekly basis.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
