    Hi all. I need help with picking new lights for planted tank. I've been using two 165 watt grow lights on my 46 gallon deep bow-front heavily planted tank for a while now. The results are excellent. Daily trimmings are required, and fast growing plants like Hornwort grow 5 to 6 inches every...

    When I first started out I had only heard and seen pictures of amazing aquariums and aquascapes. I took home a 60p with just 3 big rocks, some fine gravel and a few java ferns expecting to make a great design like on the pictures. Obviously it didn't take long before I figured out that I was...

    What is the maximum tank size for using the ONF Flat Nano? I saw that the lumen rating was 1300 which in theory would be sufficient for the UNS 60U (19 gallons). But I'm not sure if the light spread would be enough or not. I currently have it on a 10 gallon tank and it works amazing.

    My 40gal revamp is doing great, except for my stingray knockoff, the light itself is fine, but programming it is a challenge, to say the least. The fact that the instructions were extremely lackluster. So I'm asking, do any of you have a similar product and know how to program it w/remote, not a...

    Hello. I have a 20 gallon high aquarium and looking to grow some dwarf baby tears carpet. I've read that they're relatively finicky in terms of lighting and whatnot. I'm trying to find a reasonably priced light that will do well with being roughly 15"-16" away from the dwarf baby tears. I will...

    Hey guys! Currently, have a 55 gal with (presumably overkill?) a 48" Nicrew Full Spectrum LED light in the back of the tank, 2x 50w 6500K LED floodlights in the middle, and 1 36" Finnex Stingray 2 in the very front. I am attempting a dutch-like tank, not exactly following guidelines and...

    As I'm contemplating a low profile shade for my Chihiros WRGB2 (Their stock one seems bulky but I may give up and get it), I remembered I had made one for my ONF Flat nano+ that worked really well, fit it's aesthetic, and was essentially free. I thought I would share it if glare is annoying for...

    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...

    Hey everyone, Decided to go a different direction on the light for my ADA 45P. Looking to sell my Twinstar 450EC Acrylic Leg LED and dimmer for $100 shipped obo. Used for about 6 months; in next to new condition, works great! You can see the light in the journal below in my signature. I...

    Hi All! Detailed questions/advice sought below: I'm moving from a 10g high tech tank to a used tank I purchased a while back (36"L x 18"W x 20"H, ~56 gallons?). I like my high tech set up, but want to move to a jungle style tank, something I haven't done before. Substrate will probably vary...

    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...

    Does anyone have a Finnex Stingray 2 in either 12" or 16" that could tell me if the legs on either can be adjusted to fit a 14" aquarium? I like the Finnex brand, the other light I have from them was amazing on my 3 gal.

    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...

    Does anyone know the reason this occurs? A google search tells me that some plants do this in order to deter pests, and that it can be a sign of something wrong with the plant, but I know that some aquatic species appear green under low light and become red under high. How and why does this...
