Hello all. I've had my 75g setup for almost a month now. I currently have 2 T8 fixtures both with two bulbs (diamond workshop).
I'm looking to upgrade my lighting for more flexibility with dawn/dusk and dimming.
I'm looking for medium to slightly high light. Maybe 50-60 PAR at the substrate with an even layer of lighting front to back.
My thoughts so far:
2x 48 inch current freshwater + and 1x 48 inch stunner 8k
2x 48 inch finnex planted + and 1x 48 inch stunner 8k
I'm not set on the 8k stunner strip. Maybe a Blue + magenta, but that would lower par, and increase coloration.
The 2x finnex should give a par of about 50 I hope throughout the bottom of the tank
The 2x current + may not obtain those values, but with the stunner it might.
The other option would be to use a nicer quad T5 HO that has the ability to dim, and turn off bulbs separately. I would like some suggestions on a nice T5 HO before I make my decision.
