Just setup my new tank last week. It used to have T5 bulbs, which the plants did pretty well under (older tank). I ditched that canopy and bought a 6' fixture of this when I redid the tank

Is that adequate to for my plants? I'm new to LED's. I did buy a 2nd fixture to keep on hand in case.

Plants are new. Some look good so far, some look a little worse. Not sure if that's because of a new tank or lighting.

Let me know your thoughts.

Ok... Next would be suggesting some sort of control

Now rough calc us that the 72" draws about 6A meaning you are at the borderline of the above manual dimmer specs (6 amps).

So use 2 dim to taste and what the plants tell you.

.


Branswork makes a plug/ play timer- dimmer but ??? if it is compatible e/ the 72"


8 amps but need to diy a bunch
