Sorry for yet another thread on the finer points of lighting for planted tanks. I have done almost a full week of research on this topic by way of various forums, webpages, etc. I have found MANY differing opinions, and I think all I've done is confuse myself worse than where I was at square one!
To break it down, I have a 20G tank (dimensions are 24" L x 12" W x 16" H). I'm looking to have a low-medium light tank. I know for a fact that the stock bulb (and possibly hood) will not work. I have found http://www.thatpetplace.com/freshwat...&category=2789
which seems to be a good choice according to some sources, and others say it's too much, while still others say it is too little.
I would like to call upon the knowledge of you fine folks :) Is the above fixture and bulbs okay for a low-medium light 20G tank? If so, should I replace the Colormax bulb for another 6500k? If not, what would you suggest?
Thank you SO much!
