15g column, seeking DIY lighting advice
Hey guys. I have a 15g column sorority with 8 girls & 2 Nerites. pretty heavily planted with mostly easy species. Lots of Ludwigia, tons of Java Fern, floating anacharis cuttings and one big bunch rooted in the flourite, a couple of small amazon swords, frill, anda few pieces of rotala and pennywort floating around.
My current lighting lighting is the stock hood, which is a 12" 8W bulb. I'm looking for a fairly cheap way to get up to around 1.5 or 2 WPG. Any advice would be appreciates, thanks :)
The dimensions are 13.6" x 13.8" x 24.8"
2.5 gallon planted with 1 male betta
15 Gallon Column planted sorority of 8, and 2 snails.
Possibly adding shrimp in the future.
