I am guessing your light intensity is medium, though I am figuring this out still. I read that T5HOs give off light with an intensity of about 1.5 times that of a standard fluorescent light. If that is true, you'd be getting the equivalent of 2 watts per gallon, which I think is medium. Using that same idea, mine would be about 2.48, and I don't know if that is medium or high. Anyway, I am looking into what plants I can grow. I bet both of ours will grow most plants, but I am not sure. I bought two books that have been helpful so far:
-The 101 Best Aquarium Plants, by Mary E. Sweeney
-Miniencyclopedia: Aquarium Plants, by Peter Hiscock
If you order the CO2 system, will you let me know how well it works?
Sure thing. I have a solid week off of school and work the 20th, so that's when this transformation will begin. How do you like the aquaticlife fixture? Posted via Mobile Device
