A par38 from reefkoi.com would be good. I have one on my 10 gallon


Fish are friends not food!

I would say that light you linked is way overpriced for its power. I have more light than that over my 10g fresh water planted tank ant it sits at medium light level. I would say look at a different fixture.

Finnex would be a good choice for someone on a budget. However, if you want a quality light then I would say go with Build My LED Custom LED Lights for DIY Horticulture Aquarium Hobby Lighting as they have some of the better LED light fixtures around.

Does BML ship overseas? Op you may want to check a local forum and see if they have links for good lights available over there.

Not to be rude, but that's a terrible fish choice for your tank. Mandi's need mature, large tanks since they don't have the same digestive system as most fish. The need to pretty much constantly be eating pods to survive. There is no way your tank can sustain it

He has been eating frozen brine shrimp for the last 2 months at my lfs, and they assure me he will be fine, they have the normal more colourful mandatines which they refused to sell me as the would only eat live food

Doesn't matter honestly, the amount of food you'd have to add daily (5-6x daily) will quickly foul you water quality, and should it ever revert back to it's natural diet, it would wipe your tank clean in less than a week. Mandi's are my favorite fish, but I've never owned one because I've never had a tank over 40 gal display, and IMHO you need over 100lbs of rocks to even have a chance at long term success with them. Not a fish that belongs in nanos, which is unfortunate as they are so beautiful.

A friend of mine has the same sort of size tank and mine and has had great success, kept one for over year so far. It can be done I've seen and heard lots of people who have kept them in nanos, I would never keep one that wasn't eating frozen food
