Hello,
this is my first post in this forum. I am into aquarium for about some time, I recently started a planted tank. I was wondering how much watts (flourecent tube) is required to get water ripples in the gravel if the height of my aquarium is 3 feet.

Thanks.

It's isn't about how many watts you have, it's what kind of light you use. If you use metal halide, or LED lighting, you will get the ripples, or "shimmer" because the light is coming from a single point, or with LEDs, multiple points, instead of from a long tube.
