    The title says it. 10 gallon tank with HC and glosso. If the height of the tank is 10 inches from the plants to the surface ( 2 inch of substrate ) how high from the surface of the tank should I hang 2x24'' T5HO with Hagen Glo T5HO so I can have around 50 PAR on the bottom. Also is 50 PAR enough...

    Is HAGEN PowerGLO 18'000K okay for planted tanks? Says it's perfect for marine and planted tanks on the packaging. Some people disagree with that. Any comments and opinions on this? Here's the color spectrum for Hagen's Power Glo HO T5 tube.

    I'm considering getting a Hagen GLO T5 HO fixture for my 55g. Do I have to use the GLO bulbs, or can I use a different brand? If I could get a different brand, what would you recommend? Also, I noticed these bulbs tend to have high K-ratings. Will that be a problem for my plants?

    Hi all, I'm starting a high tech tank (36 x 20 x20 approx 60 gallons) I'm planning to get pressurized co2 and dose pps. The guy at my lfs says the 36" Hagen T5HO Glo fixture should be adequate with 2 life-glo bulbs. They're 2X39w. He states that they're about 96 lumens/watt which should be...

  12. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hello, I am considering installing a Hagen CO2 Plant System for my 6 gallon Fluval Edge aquarium with 8 plants in it. For nighttime when CO2 is not needed by the plants, should the unit be shut off to avoid waste and excess CO2 levels? I am concerned that the high CO2 levels might potentially...

    I only have a 5 gallon hex tank, so does it matter where the diffuser is placed? Right now I have it behind the filter intake on the back wall of the tank. Its also in the middle between top and bottom. By the way, I'm using the Hagen Natural Plant co2 system. The diffuser is pretty big...

    I ordered some HC and am going to go ahead and do some sort of co2. The only thing I add is Flourish once a week. The substrate is eco complete. Has anyone used the co2 fizzing tabs? Do they work or not? If those don't work I was going to get the Hagen Plant Grow System w/ co2. Heres the...
