I just added a 13 watt PC to my Eclipse System 3. The light I added was a DIY based on a "RITE-LITE" that I picked up from Walmart for $9.99. It came with a 6500K bulb. I got the idea to use the Rite Light from some posts on nano-reef.com. I chose this light because after modification/disassembly you can have the warm ballast sitting remotely on the floor in a safe plastic case. If anyone is interested, I can give details and pictures on how I modified the light to fit in the small space.

I now have the ability to have a total of 19 watts! (13 pc + 6 original NO)

Now my actual question......

What is considered medium, high , very high lighting for a tank this size?
I've read that the usual WPG change with smaller sized tanks.

Thanks,

Rob

what in the world do you filter a 3-2 gallon with?

Further thought... what the heck lives in a 2 gallon?
