3 way CFL's at 6500 K on my Ten Gallon
well i took a very cheap set up and customize the heck out of it
i have a Rena xP3 175 U.S. gal : 350 U.S. gal/hr (660L 1,350L/hr)basically filtering at about 10 percent of its normal rate, by circulating alot of its flow back into itself with ball valves. flourite, and a few plants.
mainly what i did was rip out the fixtures that were under the hood, and installed two 3 way light socket fixtures. and put a
Bright Effects 50-100-150 Watt 3 Way Twist CFL
equating to 12w,21w, or 32 watss per bulb, whatever i choose at 6500 K
heres some pictures, i know i'm going to need CO2
so whats everyone think about that????
Why do you think you will need CO2?
Several beautiful tanks are posted around on these forums... Most of them use the low tech method. No supplemental CO2, a weekly dose of Flourish Comprehensive, and lower lighting...
Good growth (admittedly not explosive) but low maintenance.. I like it.
In the aquarium plants forum, look for byron's stickies at the top. "A natural approach to the planted aquarium".
thanks for the response
yeah , well i'm not buying the hype they put out about florescent and led bulb ratings, so i'm using 64 watts, and its a three way florescent , so if i get to much light, i can turn it down a notch and it up at 48 watts, and then if thats to much i can turn it down another notch and get to 24 watts. sooooo we will seee!!!
how do you consider a snail in the aquarium as far as oxygen consumption???
sounds good you got any pics???
i'll take a few more
Hah, I have that hood. Probably the same tank.
Cool idea modding for brighter lights. What are you planning on keeping in there?
i have a few oto cats, a few siamese algae eaters, a leapard fish, and a pictus cat and two guppys. i am setting up a 55 gallon.... driftwood, rocks, flourite, HID lighting, CO2 ph controller, and a bunch of other stuff, looking at trying discus
