I just have a few questions maybe you guys can help me out with.
I have a 15 gallon aquarium, flourite substrate and a DIY co2 system. My question concerning lights is, i have 2 T8 tube fixtures with Glo brand Life-Glo bulbs in them, they are 18'' each at 15 watts rated at 6700k, i believe. Will this setup enable me to grow medium-high light plants. I also have a spare light fixture that has 2 CFL bulbs in it rated at 15 watts a piece and 6500k, should i use one t8 configuration in combination with the CFL bulbs or should i go with the two T8 lights?
Sorry if this is a stupid question but, it seems like the extra wattage from the CFL bulbs, with a total of 30 watts, plus another 15 from a T8 tube would be better. I'm just really unsure of this stuff.
am i out of luck without having a T5 setup?
Thanks and sorry for rambling on
