What Bulb to Get
I have the Aqueon Mini Bow Desktop Aquarium Kit 2.5g. The bulb it comes with is terrible. I have tried the half & half Zoo Med ligh. It was nice made everything look nice. But it was not bright enough. Then I tried the regular Zoo Med bulb. But it made the corals look awful. Then I tried the Aqua Culture regular bulb. It is brighter but made the corals look bad. There is no half & half Aqua Culture bulb that I can try. Is there any other brand of compact flouresent bulb that is a half & half bulb, that is bright enough?

Can't help ya there. Your better off installing your own LED in that hood.

That is a lot of work. I will just keep on looking and trying different brands.

You screw the bulb into the side of the hood.

It depend on your idea of "bright enough". Are you following a watts per gallon rule, orjust eyeballing it, because I'm not really sure what you're looking for!

Oh, sorry to go off subject, but I just strted a 2.5 reef too. What kind of corals do you have in it and are there any other animals in it? I'm looking for ideas for stocking mine.

I have a High fin Shrimp goby and Pistol shrimp, some snails and a hermit that is it. Pistol shrimps are shy creatures but when there the only things in there, it come out all the time. You should get a Shrimp goby, pistol shrimp. There awsome. Im getting a 5g and Im making that a saltwater tank. Because the tank i have now is horrible. But the creatures are doing great and they would like a bigger tank
