lighting again and again
Hi all. I know that there has been million topics about light in the past but I need some help choosing the right stuff for me. I have 65Wx2 Dual Satellite Compact Fluorescent Fixture and it seems like i need to buy a new light bulb. Which bulb would be best for planted aquarium?
These are my options
SunPaq Actinic 460nm
SunPaq Actinic 420nm
SunPaq Daylight 10000°K
SunPaq Daylight 6700°K
SunPaq Dual Daylight 6700°K/10000°K
SmartPaq Daylight 10000°K/Actinic 460nm
SunPaq Dual Actinic 420/460nm
you want 6500 or 6700k full spectrum bulbs.
please note this is for a freshwater tank.
what is? .... 6.7K or 10K? I need it for planted tank.
6500k or 6700k is ideal for a freshwater planted tank. full spectrum bulbs and about 2-3 watts per gallon (varies on types of plants your keeping)
I keep swords
Btw.. 420 lamp is not good?
actinic lighting does nothing for a freshwater planted tank. go with the 6500k or 6700k daylight full spectrum bulbs.
amazon swords are heavy root feeders so suppliment with root tabs/liquid ferts as well.
