I'm looking at the Aquatic Life - 6 light T5 HO. It comes with bulbs that are inappropriate for a planted tank ( 3 10k and 3 Blue actinic ) Tank is 75g with co2 what bulbs would you recommend?
Well then, just get ATI fixture while your are itroud:Even 2 bulbs should be enough for most anything. I have a 2 bulb fixture over my 80g and it's definitely a lot of light. Heavy CO2 and fertilization required.
The only reason I would get a 6 bulb was if I was going to convert it to saltwater one day.
Short answer, No. I have never been witness to a sun-stunned fish. Further, I hate dilly-dinking around with timers to simulate a sunrise/sunset. Generally speaking I'm at work or passed out on the couch when these events occur.... Moon lights are nice, but I don't own any yet.When you run more than one bulb, do you time it so that one bulb comes on first then the other so as to avoid shocking the fish? Also, do you use moon lights?
