Switching out lights: From T5HO to NO t8/t12
I have been running my 7 foot 210 gallon tank with only 2 out of 4 rows of T5HO lights pointing into the tank, the rest have been pointing up into the roof to provide ambient light. There are 2 four ft fixtures and 2 3 foot fixtures accounting for 372 watts of light total, only half of it pointing into the tank.
I am looking at getting 4 3ft NO fixtures (t8/t12) and replacing my existing setup with these, running half the bulbs 6500 sun and the other half plant gro. I am growing ferns and crypts and swords and anacharis well with my current rig with little algea. Would this new system provide me the light I need without going overboard?
