I want to upgrade my 4x20 watt standard fluorescents to power compacts. AH Supply tells me that a single 1x55 watt kit will be sufficient. I was originally considering either 2x35w or 2x55w.
The tank is a standard 29 gal, planted with crypts, anubias, vals, bacopa, dwarf hygro, and ludwigia. DIY CO2. I'm not looking for monster growth or a foreground lawn, since this tank is in a classroom and is "casually" maintained. Will 1x55 watt be enough?
Happy New Year to all!
