new 2 gallon aquarium
hey i just started an aquarium. the light it came with heats up my tank so i need to get a new light. im not sure which one to get. its a little discovery kids eclipse explorer II its pretty small. i wanna be able to have corals and stuff but i dont want to heat up my tank ive looked at lights and do any of you know how much wattage a Hydor Multi Light has and is it any good ?
On a tank of that size it may be hard. I would suggest a Galaxy Light (http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...54&pcatid=8154) or this light: http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_ViewIt...131~tab~1.html. I think the Galaxy is 18W, and I am unsure of the second.
i looked at the galaxy light and i liked it but would i be able to have any corals?? or like on or two i plan on taking the chromis out and get two ocellaris clowns and im keeping my peppermint shrimp would that be ok
That tank is too small for even 1 clown of any specie. You can only keep 1 very, very small fish in there (Clown Gobies, Green Banded Goby, Neon Blue Goby, etc).
You should be able to grow corals in that tank with those lights. I would use the LED light personaly for best growth.
thanks for the help.
ok i wasnt ot sure about the light for corals becuz my bro told me otherwise its only five watts so im just makin sure :question:
What is 5 watts? The lights I mentioned, or your lights?
Then you definately need to upgrade.
how long have you had a sw tank cody?
