Lower light for longer photo period
At this point in time I just want to learn one way at a time. No CO2 use excel and dry ferts with WC.
I like everyone else would like to see my tank lit. I don't mind the mornings off it just seems natural but by 10am I like them on and would like to leave them on till a decent bedtime. Could a lower light be used for the whole day? I wonder how that would effect the plants and algae? I don't mind the slow growth. I just want healthy looking.
Or is there a way to use a non growth bulb for part of the day and the grow light the rest of the time. I would need to fixtures but I have thin ones I could use.
