1847 4
hi


i was looking at the aqua one 320 to set up a small tank because my mum wont let me set a bigger one up


so is the 11 watt light good enough to grow plants?
i was hopeing for java moss, straight vails, cambodia carolina, and maybe hc cuba

it says it can take 28 liters but by the time its got substrate, rocks, driftwood, it will probs be like 22/23 liters

ohh and btw ill be having sand, tetra plant substrate and a fluval 2 plus instead of rubbish under gravel filters

thankyouuuuu :):):):)

11 watts limits you to low-light plants (that leaves out the HC "cuba"). Also with that size tank, depending on the sp. of Vals you get, they can quickly outgrow it.
Best of luck to you!

(P.S. Check out the "Low Light Plant " sticky in the Low-tech Forum)

ohh... well i was in pets at home (petsmart if your un-english lol) today and i saw the acrardia arc 35l... so i thought shame about the 1 light but then ebayed the lighting and their it was... another light, so im going to get that with a new light and it will be 22 watts to like 8ish gallons :) which is like 2.75 wpg which is wayyyyy better

will 2.75wpg be enough for hc cuba?
