    Hello All, I have a 4x t5-HO 39W unit that needs replacement. I have a 36" long, 24" deep, 21" high rimless tank (57G) with a light suspension hanger. I've got the current light set to 26" from the substrate. I would like to have medium/high for the carpeted plants. I want to have...

    Will this light work for a low tech tank? I'm getting mixed information the longer I look. I ordered this from Amazon last night and second guessed myself but it's too late to cancel the order. The alternative light I was considering is the Fugeray Planted+ 10" clip light.
  4. Buce Plant
    Hi all, We just got done with some PAR meter testing on the tanks we have with bucephalandra. The findings were very surprising tbh. We didn't know just how little light some of our buce was getting! Thats good news for the low-tech people though. Bucephalandra thrive in almost any lighting...

    Just picked up an ADA 17 gallon cube. Thinking of going with LED's and don't have much experience with them. Looking for suggestions. Also, I was just in Aqua Forest Aquarium in SF and they had some fancy new light that wasn't ADA or Archea, the two brands they carry, does anyone know what brand...

  10. New to Planted Aquariums
    OK, I'm a newbie to this hobby, and also on a very tight budget. I've read reams of threads here and elsewhere about how to calculate lighting requirements for a planted tank. I've concluded that I'm just too stupid or lazy to do this on my own. Here's the bottom line: With the money I have...
  11. Lighting
    Hi, I'm new to this forum, having a 200l liter freshwater tank, lots of plants, few fish. I'm considering LED lighting, but offers here in EU are either very low quality or prohibitive price. And then there's a lot of DIY, but I'm not too good at this... What do you use in the US? Thanks, Marta

    Hi I have an empty 1.5g Tetra Water Wonders tank in which I would like to house some plants and rcs. Does anyone know if the 5 watt led light that comes with the tank is sufficient for allowing plant growth? I want to put mostly riccia, baby tears, and, wisteria in it since I have an excess of...

    MY FIRST LED EXPERIENCE I appreciated the recent threads on LED lighting by Kevin Jones, Maichel, and others. My thread is a bit different in tone and is meant as a log of my experience with enough detail to help other folks who might be in the same boat as I was. It should be very apparent to...
