LED Lighting and Jawfish ?
I started my BioCube 29 HQI right of the bat by taking the entire lighting fixture off and laying to l.e.d. Strips on the glass. One is blue and the other white, both at 9W each (total 18W).
I'm consIdering buying another two strips of the same type for a total of 36W because it seems the l.e.d fixture don't spread the light as much as I originally thought. I have to position my colt coral directly under it so it grows vertical and not slouched over, same thing my Sps leather (I moved him to the very top, now he's twice his size.
Is an additional 18W to much! Will I see a huge jump in algae growth?
I also wanted to know if I could do a jawfish. Unfortionately, my rocks (35lbs) and sitting on top of my sand . When I put the rock ontop of my sand (40lbs) I wiggle and grinder them down as far as I could. Does that matter, or is any burrowing fish a no go with my tank.
Sorry for the long post,
