As for the specs on the LED lights, how would I find out? I don't remember the papers that came with the tank in the box explaining the lights, maybe I missed it. Also. . Who's Jeff? >_<
Jeff is one of our members who has tried some of the LED lighting and knows more about it than I do. I think his TFK name is JDM.

If you can give us a link to online info about the light you have, it will help.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
