New Member - Advice Please?
I have a 65Gal tank - 36x18x24. I have 192W CoraLife lights. CO2 Equipment on the way. This fixture gets very hot so I will be mounting it on legs. I was going to go with an open top but I don't want my fish to escape. So if I use the CL adjustable legs, with a top, will 192W CL lights be a good amount of lighting for a 24" deep tank? Will I be able to grow a wide variety of plants? Can anyone recommend a foreground cover plant that will suceed under these conditions (192W CL fixture, 24" deep tank, eco-complete, press. CO2.)?
I plan on having a betta or 2 so if I did use an open top is there any way to ensure they will not leap? I thought I read once that using LED's on the top of the tank have worked in keeping fish from leaping. Any thoughts?
