what lighting should i use?
hi guys me again ,i have a fish and plant tank with t8 lighting i have 1x daylite 18w and 1x warm lite 18w ,i would like to know what bulbs is best for my tank (t8) many thanx...
just get a fluorencent light that has a kelvin rating of 6700k Daylight thats the best for growing plants! and make sure thats its atleast 1 watt per gallon and not too many watts because algae can grow really fast when your light is too powerful!!
Assuming this is the 40g "sub" tank, what you have sounds OK if the spectrum and kelvin are what "daylight" and "warm white" denote. I prefer cool white overall, but having seen your aquascape in this instance a slightly warmer white might work better. Esp if you get any "red" plants from that other thread, they will do a bit better with reddish (warm) white. Your daylight will still balance fine.
