Hello All,

I just picked up a 20 long and plan on growing a Hairgrass carpet.

My budget for lighting is 150 and I would prefer LED.

I will be running pressurized Co2 in the tank along with root tabs and some sort of adapted dosing which I will work out later.


Ideally I would like to sit the light on the rim but I'm kinda stressed that I will only be able to have the lights on for 6 hours. On the other hand I don't like the idea of rigging a stand for the light but I am stressing because to grow DHG at a good rate I need high light.

What would be some good options for me?

Another question I have is how long do I run my lights per day? I have a small Ray 2 on a 7 gallon which I am still struggling to figure our (17 inches from Sub)

Update**

Im trying to choose between the following:

Satellite Plus PRO

Finnex Ray 2

Finnex FugeRay Planted+

Finnex 24/7

Mr.Aqua (not sure model just the compatible light to above)

For the above mentioned I was hoping to sit it on top of my aquarium which is 12 and 3/4" tall however I am also looking into getting some LED leg extensions if its too close.... again this tank is going to be all Dwarf Hairgrass with pressurized CO2, Root Tabs and some form of Dosing..
