Best lighting options
I have been reading this forum for the past couple of weeks to see if I wanted to try out a planted tank for my 22 month old son's room. After reading for a week or so, I've decided to jump in! I have a 12 gallon JBJ Nano cube that I used for a salt water reef tank perviously that I plan on using. My question is, what would be my best lighting options. When using the tank for a reef, I ripped the top off (read.. broke it accidently and had to...) and bought a JBJ Viper Metal Hailid (sp?) clamp on light. It worked great for my reef. Should I try using this for a planted tank? or should I buy a different lighting system? I have been looking at a few including system that includes a 18 Watt Sun Paq lamp as well as a lunar light? Would that be a good option? Has anyone every used this system before?
Also, what about LED lighting? Does anyone have experience using these with a planted tank?
Thanks in advance for your help!
