Ok so I am in the planning stages of my aquarium and am wondering on the lighting situation. I cannot figure out exactly how much lighting I need and what to buy... At first I was going with the WPG rule but now it seems like everyone says not to base it on that. So I am at a loss after reading for literally hours on this.. So here I come in search of help!
My set-up is going to be a 92 Gallon Corner. It is 48" at the widest part but it accommodates 36" lights. That was one more concern with the odd triangle bow front shape of this tank..
I have found this JBJ Formosa DX 36" 2x96W PC for a pretty good deal http://www.aquariumplants.com/product_p/jbjdx.htm
I was also looking at AH supply but after making a top it comes out to about the same price either way... and I like the idea that the JBJ has fans in it..
I am going to be running pressurized Co2 so I thought I would include this as that is a factor as well from what I think I have been learning.
So is a 2x96W PC from AH Supply or JBJ enough or do I need more. WPG it comes out to 2.09 WPG which in my mind is low but a a lot of people are saying on larger tanks this is ok?? As you can see I am quite confused here and all help is very much appreciated!
ps I have read stuff on REX's site as well.
