40 Gallon Lighting
What kind of light should I use for a 40 gallon breeder low light natural tank. I was thinking of a single bulb T8 fixture with a zoo med 30 watt 6500K T8 bulb. Would that be enough?
Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me
S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.
Agree. ZooMed's Ultra Sun is a good tube, 6700K. They also have a warmer white, Tropic Sun, which is equally good although I prefer less "warm" in the colour but that is just preference.

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]
