best type of lighting for aquarium plants
i have a 29 gallon freshwater tank with live plants that are not doing so well and wondering what type of light would be the best for growing them??????????
well I am certainly not the person to explain Kelvin rating but simply put it is the color temperature of a light source. Plants go best between 5000k - 7000k. 6500k is what most ppl use as it is closes to the sun durning at noon. A single 70w bulb probably isn't the best. Two bulbs would be best but then you would probably want the bulbs to be 15watts 6500k bulbs.
