Hello :) New Guy. Some questions!
Just wanted to introduce my self real quick, seeing as though I might be spending a lot of time here in the near future.
I am the owner of 4 tanks. 10 gallon, 30 gallon, 55 gallon and a new addition a 2 1/2 nano reef.
The only planted tank I have as of now is my 55. (Way to start small right?)
My real concern right now is I guess, is my lighting enough?
I went out and bought a Deep Blue Solarmax 248. (2 Bulbs, 48 inches in length). The fixture came with a 10000k lamp and a blue actinic. I replaced the blue with a 6700k lamp and am now just waiting to see what the plants do. Wondering if it is going to be enough for the plants to grow.
Edit: It is a t5 fixture and It uses the 28 watt bulbs.
