New 60 gallon tank
I've got an old aquarium originally set up for salt water, that I wanted to give my son. He wants to set it up for freshwater plants and fish, perhaps discus or angels.
The lighting system consists of:
4 - CFL 9 watt 5000 k lamps
4 - CFL 9 watt Blue lamps
2 - CFL 39 watt 4100 k lamps
We've got a lot of work to do, but is this spectrum good for this new tank or should we be looking for different bulbs. Not really interested in going with T5 or T12, LED etc. as we're trying to keep our costs down and we'd like to use the equipment we have for now if possible. Any suggestions?
