    I set up a new 30 gallon about 2 months ago and it's been going pretty well, most plants are doing really well and have grown incredibly fast in the last few weeks. Still having some slight issues with my repens, lost more than 100 of the 150 I initially planted. Good news is that the ones that...

    I am looking for a dimmable full spectrum light from my UN60L (6 gallon). It is a very shallow tank, and I'm currently using a Finnex Stingray 2. I've just setup the tank 2 weeks ago, and planted some Dwarf Baby Tears, Anubias Nana Petite, and Rotala Wallichii. I may have had my light a bit too...

    I'm going to be buying and setting up a 90 gallon aquarium next month and am a bit stumped on lighting choices for it that are available in Canada. Finnex lights are not sold here (I think due to it not meeting some type of safety regulation) so I'm unable to get the most highly recommended...

    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...

    I have a 10 gal on two 2.5 gal tanks. I will have mostly low/medium light plants but I want to be able to have a wider range of plant options to choose from and for those plants flourish and thrive. I heard Finnex Stingray (for 2.5g) and FugeRay Planted + (for 10g)are good but there are...

    Hey guys, so I have a question. So the Finnex 24/7 Planted Plus has 8 different time blocks where the light is different. I was wondering if the lights have sufficient intensity at the times besides 12pm-3pm and 3pm-6pm. I cant customize this light so I am debating just putting it at the...

    Hi guys! I currently just got back into the hobby after a 2 year hiatus. I ran into an issue with my T5HO dying on me during this time. I bought the Fluval Aquasky 18W and hung it up over my tank. I feel like this is still a bit on the low light spectrum. Looking to grow plants that will...

What is the latest thinking on how long LEDs last, whether their output falls off over time, and whether the light spectrum changes over time? I have seen estimates of light life ranging from 10,000 hours to 50,000 hours. That...
