Differences of Tank Looks Depending on Tank Light Used
Sigh...Look at the differences between the pics I took previously.
I used pink light on the first one. How miserable the pic looks.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i...iles/shake.gif The tank even looks too dark.
Sorry about this pic. Seems there is a black covering up the top part of the pic. It could just be my pc.:mrgreen:
The 2nd one uses daylight tube which I currently run now because of excellent results.:thumbsup: My Nymphaea stellata is growing quite well under this type of lighting.:mrgreen: And my discus aren't even too shy prior to some people saying they like subdued lights better.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i.../Sarcastic.gif
I just use a cheap 18W of light with 6200 kelvins.:mrgreen: Don't ask me. I don't know anything about plants.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i...iles/shake.gif
By the way, this pic was taken before so my tank is different now.:mrgreen: I threw away some of my plants because their roots are acting like tree roots which are trying to undermine the sealant which can cause tank leakage.:blink:
The plants with big leaves are Cryptocoryne crispatula. They're the ones threw away because of the roots as mentioned previously.
P.S. If anyone has a machete, I'll gladly accept that so I can prepare in case my Nymphaea stellata tries to overrun my tank again.:devil:
Pls take note I don't use flash. Flash just messes up my pics.:redmad:
Good comparison Blue...the 2nd show the tank beautifully.
Yeah that second pic looks loads better Blue!! Lovely tank mate.
You say you don't use a flash? Im sure there is a flash reflection on the first pic, and thats how my full tank shots look when i use a flash makes them look horrible.
btw whats the fish with the orange tail? pretty thats for sure
He doesn't use flash anymore probably. :P
Threadfin rainbowfish(Iriatherina werneri)
Glass bloodfin(Prionobrama filigera)-red tail though
There's a fish with orange line running accross its body which you can see in the first pic, they're Red-tailed rasboras which are currently living in my pond and producing too fast.http://www.smilies.our-local.co.uk/i.../Sarcastic.gif
Its the one of the far left of the second picture Blue, by a process of elimination i think those are the Glass bloodfin(Prionobrama filigera)?
I have never seen them, they are beautiful, let the hunt begin!
Plants are supposed to thrive in lighting from 5000k-10000k. I know aroung 6800K, the lighting is more yellowish. As you get closer to 10000K, the lighting is more neutral, almost blue.
I original 10000K bulbs on my 125, but later switched to 6700K bulbes. I didn't like the yellowish appearance, so I switched back to the 10000K bulbs. Eventually, I'm going to switch all for lamps to 50/50 (10000K/actinic) bulbs. Actinic bulbs don't benifit the plants, but will show the blues on the fish more.
Thanks for the info, Eddie.:thumbsup:
