Aquarium Lighting Question
I am just setting up my 90 gallon tank. I still need some lighting though. I was wondering if I could use just a regular strip light from Home Depot, or do I have to buy a light made specifically for my tank.. I was told by a pet store owner today that A Home Depot light would be good.. since I have a glass lid and a wooden hood that has vents in it. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Measure the top of the tank and tell mt the width.
My tank is 48" wide
I buy my lights from Ace Hardware.;) Fluorescent lights are the best way to grow plants compared to incandescents. You might give lumens consideration for planted tanks should you wish to keep plants as well.:)
Here are some good links to read.
That is an awesome website where they've obviously done their homework. There's even a calculator that'll give you a good idea of how much of what kind of light you need. Very well done.
