    Hey folks, newbie aquarist here. I have 2×1.5×1.5 feet tank with preassurised CO2 injected. Currently I am using Sunsun ADS 500C led light, its pretty decent white led light but I wanted to switch to good WRGB light. Budget wise I can afford Chihiros WRGB 2 slim (60cm) or WRGB 2(45cm). I did my...

    Hi yall, been lurking on these forums for a few years now and this place has given me a ton of useful knowledge and advice when I first got started in this hobby. I would like to give back a little by documenting a quick tutorial on getting a custom timer to work that works with the finnex 24/7...

    Im looking to make some inexpensive lights for frog / lizard / snake vivs. I was drawn to these because I can easily make "U" shaped lights with them - and because they are very bright and very cheap. I can get waterproof and aluminum channel but for my use, I can just adhere them to a thin...

    Hi, at the moment, my 28 gallon has an aerogarden on it to light it, using LED lights, the aerogarden is just a hydroponic system with nice lights. It has the most plants in it right now, I'm growing them in there and then will propagate them in other tanks. Will this light be sufficient for the...

    What lights would be recommended for Waterbox Clear Pro 7225 167G (72.3"L ×25.3"W ×23.6"H) tank. I'm planning to grow high-light plants using fertilizer and Co2. All the on-line reviews I'm seeing are pointing to the use of Fluval Plant 3.0 or the little know about Finnex Planted+ 24/7 ALC...

    Alright so I have a question for you all. Which fixture and why? Someone was throwing out Hydro Planet T5HO 2foot fixture(4bulbs) and I happened to find it on the side of the road. Looks very similar to this fixture. It looks like it's in really good shape, I still have to test it out to make...

    Hi guys, So I have been struggling to get some coloration out of some rotala and also growth has been slow even with CO2 while using a nicrew deluxe LED. I especially have problems in the back corners. I'm thinking of upgrading to a Chihiros RGB A plus and wanted to get your thoughts. 1.) Do...

    Hello, Switching back from reef tanks and would love some advice. I'm going to have discuss and wanted to run some low-moderate lights. I have T5's but I wouldn't mind switching to LED. If I ran Kessils would I need 360s or could I get by with 160s? What lights will show off the fish and...

The tank is standard 48" x 18" x 24" and will eventually house mainly clown loaches and java fern, swords, anubias', vallisneria, etc. I will...

    I currently have a 10gal that I want to grow a carpet of hairgrass in. I'm injecting co2 into and need to find a light for it. I have on hand a 100w LED grow light. Is it feasible to use this? I have dimmed it using the built in function and only brought its lux intensity down by about half...

    I have two 45 gallon Osaka tanks that I've done a journal on here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/12-tank-journals/1302385-two-old-osaka-cubes-getting-makeover.html Tanks are 24"x18"x24" tall. With these being open top and having powerful airstones that come on periodically, I feel like my...

    I have a current usa satellite led fixture collecting dust since I upgraded my reef tank lights. Would this work for a planted tank? It would be over a 20L I'm working on for my wife. It only has blue and white leds. Or should I look for something else? It has on the white channels 8/12k and on...

    I have a 16 gallon bow-front that I brought back to life after years of dust. It is in my signature. When setting it up a few months ago, I accidentally broke the rectangular part of of the glass lid. I've only hit two of my local stores looking for a replacement, but no luck yet, or online. I...
