On to the lighting
Along with the 75 gal. aquarium I just purchased came these really nice coralife lights. Don't know too much about lighting yet, now may be a good time to learn. I tried doing research on this, but it got too confusing. The hood has 4 65 w. 10,000K Daylight bulbs, 4 65 w. 03 Blue Actinic Flourescent bulbs, plus the moonlights. All lights have a separate switch. When I turn on the daylight bulbs, a fan comes on too, oh boy !! O.K., I did freshwater before this, no fancy lighting. What are these different bulbs for ?? Can someone at least start me out and tell me which light to have lit when and for how long ?? I know the moon lights are a matter of prefference, or is that the deal with all the lights ?? This is just a FOWLR aquarium right now,nothing fancy.
Thanks guys, I've got the basics now, it's these little things that are getting me now.
Just a heads up, skimmer will probably be next.
