Thanks for the advice. Others here to have warned me about lighting for Anenomies. So thanks to all with helping me avoid possable disaster.
Right now I am useing LED
lighting and that certainly will not work.
I also have MH
lighting that came with my setup ( 29 gallon biocube) that is 14000 par if I am correct and that should work fine to do what I need.
Now the bad side of that.
I have had a hard time with the recent heatwave keeping my water tempature down to where it normally is so the added heat from the MH
lighting would certainly not help with that problem. I did rig up some cooling fans and they worked great at getting my tempature back down. The other downside is the power consumption of the MH
is 250 watts.
I think I am just going to wait until I get my other tank setup. Going to take a while but as I said no rush ; I am still gathering the rest of what I need to get it finished.
Thanks again for all the help and advice that everyone here has provided to me here. Great site!!
