First I should say hello as this is my first time here, so, hello
I was wondering if you guys could help me? I've got questions about lighting. It's actually for birds but I think fish people will be able to help more as you are all really clued up on your lighting.
I don't understand much about lighting, so if I sound thick, it's 'cos i am LOL!
I need lighting with a spacial fequency/flicker rate of 160 hz or better.
At pressent I have a UV florecent strip light and a normal bayonnet 65w energy saving daylight bulb (equivalent to 350w). I know ballast can reduce the flicker and that it is used on fish tanks, but I have no idea what it actually is, whether I can use it with what I have, where to get it, or what sort I need to get the flicker rate to 160 hertz or better.
Can anyone help me get my head round all this please?
