You can buy 30" LED and T5 fixtures. I've just been using a lame T8 fixture and have managed to get decent plant growth, but I'm switching to a Finnex Fugeray Planted+.
Wow I feel stupid, thought those sort of fixtures only came in 12"/24"/36"/48" etc measurements.You can buy 30" LED and T5 fixtures. I've just been using a lame T8 fixture and have managed to get decent plant growth, but I'm switching to a Finnex Fugeray Planted+.
My husband is quite handy knows carpentry, plumbing, and electrical so I'm lucky to have him help me alot ^^If you are handy then you can make nice hood for the shop lights/reflectors otherwise they will look ugly. I bought 30 inch Finnex planted plus but it might be mid/high for 20 gallon long. If you want low/med then Finnex Fugeray might be good for you.
What lighting would that Finnex model put you on (if just slapped on top of the tank) medium-high? I wouldn't buy lights from my petco or petsmart, marked up too much, tanks on super sale is the only think I get there.. and the very rare impulse buy like stem plants.High five to you! I just bought myself a 20g long at the petco $1 gal sale. I ordered a 30" finnex fugeray light, should arrive tomorrow. I don't know if all the Petcos are having it, I live in scottsdale so that's where I got mine from.
