Needing help on lighting
How`s it going, i just bought a 250 gallon tank (96"x24"x25"). I`m wanting to grow live plants and any other stuff that i decide to put in it. What kind of lights do i need to get for it. I wanting to stay with the t5 lights if i can, since they are cheaper to run. Any ideals on what i need and where might be the best place to buy them. Thanks alot, james
