    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    Hello all! I'm new to the forum but had some questions regarding my planted tank. I have a 29 gallon with a Nicrew rgb plus 24/7 spectrum light along with two other small clip on lights (all whites, probably do nothing other than illuminate). With this combo I am only really able to grow...

    Hi, stupid question, I know. I have a 20gal long aquarium and a NICREW Classic LED Plus light. According to their website, this light is 22W, 1150lm and 6500k. From my research I know that this light is on the low end of wattage for plants, but I don't have the money to invest in a twinstar or...

    Hello everyone. I have a planted tank with some DIY lighting that isn't really enough for my plants. I currently have java ferns, which are doing fine, but that's all that is really happy. I'd like an inexpensive light that will offer low-med lighting that is totally waterproof. Has anyone...
