after a short saltwater break....
I left planted tanks for a few months to embark on a nano reef tank, while that project is going good still i only had a 10g planted tank left....
so i bought a 40 breeder during petco's $1/gallon lol
question is lights, i have always dealt with T5HO lighting, however i can get what i consider to be a good deal on a power compact fixture, but not sure what I will end up with for growing
its a coralife 36" pc 1x96w it is currently set up for marine, but i can get a bulb for it for cost at my LFS. getting the fixture for $30, nothing wrong with it
so my question is over a 40b is that going to be considered low, med or high light? will it grow most plants? will it not?
my other option is to buy a new fixture, ie a deep blue 2x39w T5HO, but they run about $85 or the extreme 4x39w for $200
had some friends help me get back into planted lol, friend i met at my LFS a while back gave me 2 of the marineland 350 filters for the tank! good stuff, i was like, dude, they are rated for like 50g each, hes like, so you cant ever have too much filtering! haha, good stuff! another friend gave me an old heater, so im off again into the planted world!
Once a Marine, Always a Marine!
