Hello All--

So I finally have been given permission to take over the 125 gallon tank in the lobby at my university where I work.

I know I am going to do a low light dirted tank. My question to you all is how should I light this 6 ft long and 20 in deep (to dirt) tank?? My budget is going to be pretty small for the lighting equipment. However electrical cost do not matter.

I was thinking about florescent t8. How many should i use? What do you think?

PS I would prefer LED but i do not think that is in the budget

Thanks
